CM Arnerich's comments are delusional. The one developer who submitted a comment on the Housing Element owns the Village Shopping Center and his comment was focused on how they *wanted* to build apartments there but needed better development standards (heights, parking, lot coverage, FAR) in order to make it feasible. Danville's governmental constraints are the reason they can't build.

The reason Danville is fighting so hard against more density in single family zones is precisely because it's feasible to build. If no one wanted to build it it wouldn't be a "problem."

There is zero chance that this draft gets accepted and this coverage would be better if you read through the public comments that were submitted to Danville on this item.
