This website has been created by a group of Danville and Diablo residents in response to SummerHill Homes’ proposed development of Magee ranch in Danville, California.
It is our goal to make sure that our neighbors are fully aware of SummerHill’s plans because we believe that this development will have a serious impact to Danville and Diablo residents...and not just those that live and commute along Blackhawk Road, Diablo Road, El Cerro Boulevard, McCauley Road and Green Valley Road. Ultimately, any resident who appreciates and enjoys Danville's existing countryside, wildlife and quality of life needs to know about the ramifications of this development.
We hope that you find the information on these pages useful and we encourage you to seek out additional resources (such as those provided on "The Development" page) as you form your own opinion regarding this project.
Thanks to the amazing support of local residents, SOS Danville has prevailed in its suit against the Town of Danville and its approval of the SummerHill Magee Ranch project. The judge ruled that Danville Town Council violated the Danville General Plan when it rezoned the Magee Ranch Agricultural-designated land to Planned Unit Residential Development zoning, without first changing the land use designation to a Residential one that permits P-1 zoning.
SOS Danville also prevailed on the issue of bicycle safety. The judge ruled that the Council violated the California Environmental Quality Act in its failure in the EIR to analyze the impact of the SummerHill project's increased traffic on bicyclist safety along Diablo Road.
This has been a long road for the public, beginning nearly four years ago when the project was first announced. Since then, thousands of residents have become involved in the effort to obtain the vote mandated by Measure S. Thank you for your ongoing support and please continue to DONATE to the legal fund as we fully expect The Town to appeal.
