Livermore planners split on proposed Sunset Development housing projects

At one time, they talked about re-zoning the Springtown golf course, and building housing. I think they should put a road right down the middle of it that will replace Bluebell, and put lots of greenspace and soundwalls around it. Springtown has the worst road-planning in Livermore.

South Livermore isn't the wealthiest? Better check your facts big fella. Best schools, highest property values and least crime. Trust me, my fair share is plenty. I'm sorry you depend on others since your share isn't enough. Now that I've got that out of the way.... Spring town has the largest amount if open space with direct access to vasco and 580 which are the heavy commuter areas. Pull your head out if the sand. This isn't about your precious Bluebell drive.

Why not expand around Costco/Las Positas College for high density housing? I understand they are talking about turning Las Positas into a four year college eventually and if so, they will need considerably more apartments and condos nearby. It is also right near the freeway and the construction will not impact existing residents nearly as much.
