Danville Planning Commission to discuss West El Pintado Road townhouse project

37 homes would be located directly west of I-680 onramp

The construction of 37 townhouses within central Danville is set to be the top item of conversation for the town’s Planning Commission on Tuesday evening, during which commissioners will discuss the environmental impact of the proposed development and consider recommending final approval to the Town Council.

The current proposal for the site long-eyed for development calls for townhomes of 2-1/2 stories each with a one- or two-car garage at the 1.88-acre property located at 359 & 375 West El Pintado Road -- several blocks east of San Ramon Valley High School and directly west of the southbound on-ramp to Interstate 680.

Parking to accommodate the new homes would require the installation of 82 on-site parking spaces, including 63 garage parking spaces. Town staff also noted that an additional 10 or more street parking spaces would be located along the front of the property.

In accordance with the town’s inclusionary housing ordinance, developers will be required to reserve a minimum of five units for moderate income households, according to a staff report by Danville principal planner David Crompton.

The project is being developed by Alamo-based Talmont Homes.

Town planning staff recommends approval of the project -- a decision that would ultimately be made by the Town Council, should the Planning Commission endorse it.

The commission is scheduled to hold its regular meeting Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Town Meeting Hall, 201 Front St.

In other business

* Commissioners will also address some in-house business and discuss the appointment of one of their members to serve as the year’s Planning Commission chair and another to serve as vice chair.

* After the commission's 2019 leadership is selected, members will look to appoint a representative to serve with the town’s Design Review Board.

The Danville Planning Commission needs to try to find a parking spot downtown around noon any day of the week to understand that additional residences, on top of the ones already being built by 680, will further negatively impact the traffic and congestion downtown.

At what point is housing development halted?

We can’t drive or park anywhere in Danville as it is. All of the new “development” is only destroying the quality of life we once enjoyed here. Such a shame.
