Town of Danville Official FAQs Magee Ranch Development
The Town of Danville FAQs are below or click here to their site
1.What is The Magee Preserve Project?
This is a proposal by Davidon Homes to develop approximately 29 acres (or 7%) of the 410-acre project site with 69 single family homes and seven attached secondary dwelling units (a.k.a. “casitas” or “in-law units”) As shown on the project site plan on the project page, the proposed lots are shown in blue while the remaining 381 acres (shown in white) would be converted to permanent open space.
2.Is it a development on an Open Space Preserve?
No. The name of the proposed project selected by the developer is The Magee Preserve. If approved, the project would set aside approximately 93% of the site as permanent open space. However, at this time the property is privately owned by the Magee family and has development rights based on General Plan and zoning regulations established long before the Town’s incorporation.
As shown on the site plan (on the project page), the property is located on the south side of Diablo Road and Blackhawk Road extending approximately two miles east from the intersection of Diablo Road/Green Valley Road/McCauley Road. MostRead More
