Danville Planning Commission, please don't allow this change. Once the Town starts approving changes to the minimum lot requirements for 1 person, everyone will jump on the band wagon to change their lot sizes and build more expensive housing. We love the open land in Danville, it adds to the character of the town.

Part of the Montair CC&Rs requires setbacks of 50 feet. On this very hilly land that isn’t as easy as it may sound, and I believe there have been few exceptions. This issue involves a lot more than square footage. This exception would immediately become a most unfortunate and harmful precedent.

The adjustment is needed because the house is on two separate lots?!?! Of course the town should and will approve this. Maximizing the value of these lots with EXISTING single family homes should be their goal.

I trust that the Danville Planning Commission will support its residents and shut down this unreasonable HOA. If Randy is a real person, why isn’t he/ she working for the homeowners’ best interest?

It appears that the situation and reason for requested exception isn’t being made clear. The home which is on the property currently sits overlapping onto another lot. That’d never be allowed nowadays so should be remedied by current standards. Best to explain the whole story so that voters and other interested parties can decide what and whom they support based on all the facts. Increasingly rare these days.

This decision should be made by the City Of Danville’s planning department and not influenced by the biased HOA committee. I would recommend the planning department allow the homeowner to update and modify the existing lot lines. The lot line change would have 2 lots with similar sizes allowing future homeowners equal acreage that it is sufficient for our area.
