Davidon Project Should be Reviewed Using the General Plan 2025

Davidon Homes of Walnut Creek developed plans in 2004 to build 93 luxury homes on 58 acres at D Street and Windsor, right next to Helen Putnam County Regional Park and Petaluma's urban growth boundary.

Davidon now insists that the approval of the development should be evaluated using the expired, antiquated 1987-2005 General Plan. So far, city planning officials seem to be letting Davidon have its way.

Petalumans for Responsible Planning believes that the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) should not be evaluated criteria from 25 years ago. The environmental data, and the standards for judging it, must be updated to the present and comply with the 2025 General Plan, which the City Council adopted in 2008. These include protections for scenic "gateway" locations and specific requirements for this site--to keep the red barn and native trees in place, save Kelly Creek and the animal habitats, and provide a trailhead and public park facilities.

By signing this petition, I agree that the City of Petaluma must reverse its position and evaluate the Davidon DEIR under the 2025 General Plan.
