I would like to know if the County is planning to expand the ULL - Urban Limit Line - next to Tassajara Hills Elementary School for the new, proposed LARGE housing development, with the deceiving name (in my opinion) of “Tassajara Parks”. (It’s NOT a park!) My concern is that this will just be the very beginning of expanding the ULL, all the way to Dublin from unincorporated Danville, and there will be no Agricultural Designated land area, as it all is now (vs. Residential or Commercial Land Use).

I would also like to know where things stand on the proposed MASSIVE URBAN cemetery on Tassajara Rd. (“Creekside Memorial Park Cemetery”, since its developer, Sid Corrie, has passed away. This is no small cemetery we’re talking about. It is supposed to have 100,000, yes 100,000 burial plots, 60,000 square feet of buildings, parking lots, etc., visible from Open Park Preserve areas.

I would also like to know why County Connection buses cannot be provided for residents commuting to Monte Vista High in the mornings for “0” and First Period start times (there’s an afternoon bus to return home), who reside east of Crow Canyon, in incorporated and unincorporated Danville and Blackhawk. I have a petition signed by almost 500 people for these buses, but although County Connection included it as an “Agenda Item” in one of their Board Meetings about a year and a half ago, they said it was too costly and they did not have the $122,000 it would cost. Wouldn’t the cost of paying for the bus counteract some of the expenses? Is there an alternative, as many using Traffix (if they’re lucky enough to purchase a pass) are only using it to get home, as Traffix only picks up in the mornings for First Period start times at Monte Vista, not for “0” Period start times, which about 40% of the kids at MV take.
