Contra Costa County Residents FED UP with Urban Sprawl Take A Stand

Original post made by, Tassajara Hills Elementary School, on Mar 4, 2017

In its first week the "Hold the Line!" Petition has received over 1,300 signatures and 350 comments! Our petition is actually the 8th highest "environmental" petition trending this week on!! Take a look at the "Comment Tree" we created from every comment received. It clearly states that, "We Need Open Space!"

Contra Costa County Urban Limit Line Threatened! Over 9,000 acres of Open Space At Risk! Stop Urban Sprawl into Tassajara Valley!
A high-density 125 home development (“Tassajara Parks”) is being proposed for the undeveloped portion of Tassajara Valley east of Danville. The development is outside the voter mandated Urban Limit Line (“ULL”) that prohibits urban development outside the line and into the county’s protected agricultural lands and open spaces. If the county supervisors approve this development, it will establish a precedent for other developers to follow, and put at risk over 9,000 acres of voter approved protected lands in the county to further development.

Add your name to telling the county’s supervisors to reject this development proposal and respect the will of the county’s voters that the Urban Limit Line means “no development outside of the line”.
