DANVILLE, CA-A new development designed for low- and moderate-income families is being planned on the edge of Tassajara Valley in Danville and has some residents and groups stirring up a fuss.

The proposed project includes 95 apartment units in 10 3-story buildings along Camino Tassajara. Of these units, 62 would be for moderate-income families, while 24 would be reserved for low-income families and 9 for very low-income families.

Also proposed is a 120-unit, 3-story apartment project built for seniors, which would include 40% moderate-income and 60% low- and very low-income units. An additional 124 townhouses for sale would be affordable to moderate-income families.

Under the established guidelines, a family of four earning up to $53,850 annually can qualify for low-income housing, while a family earning up to $35,800 is considered very-low income. Danville’s countywide median income is $71,600, which leads some residents to complain that the new housing projects may have a negative affect on the neighborhood.

An anonymous flier was passed out at last week’s Contra Costa County hearing describing the 1,400-unit Alamo Creek-Intervening Properties project as an abomination, saying that the tenants it will attract will have no commitment to Danville beyond one month’s rent. The flier adds that the community values and schools will be polluted.

Speakers both for and against the housing project will be heard at the Planning Commission and San Ramon Valley Regional Planning Commission hearing tonight.
