In the end, the people spoke – and they said “no” to a developer’s plans to build more homes on a 22-acre parcel bounded by Pleasant Hill and Deer Hill roads, across the street from Acalanes High School.
A yes vote was a vote in favor of adopting the Homes at Deer Hill Project, which included a planned development with up to 44 new homes, park facilities, and rezoning land for the project from administrative professional office to low-density single-family residential.
Opponents countered that the project would mean bring more traffic to an already congested nexus of city roads. The vote has been muddied by some reports that at least two polling places may have had to turn away voters after running out of ballots.
