Greenbelt Alliance submits legal letter to Pittsburg to protect hills

In late 2010, the City of Pittsburg began fast-tracking the annexation of one of the most significant ridgelines in Contra Costa County on behalf of Seeno Developer subsidiary Discovery Builders Inc. / Faria Land Investors LLC. The annexation would pave the way for development of thousands of houses on the majestic hills that separate Pittsburg from Concord.

Greenbelt Alliance and Save Mount Diablo hired the respected land-use law firm Shute, Mihaly & Weinberger LLP to write a comment letter (pdf) to the City of Pittsburg showing how the annexation proposal would violate state laws and numerous local and regional policies.

We are now waiting for a response from the City.
