Monday is the last day to comment on the Environmental Impact Report for the Patterson Ranch project, which is slated to include 839 homes, a 30-acre park, shops, two churches and a new elementary school very close to Coyote Hills Regional Park.
A group of environmentalists put the project on the ballot in 2006, but Fremont voters decided not to kill it by rezoning the land.
Now the environmentalists might have a new ally. I hear the school district is very concerned about the proposal because it doesn’t think it includes enough money for that new Elementary School. The Planning Commission held a public hearing on the project last night, and I’m told Superintendent Milt Werner showed up to reiterate the district’s concerns.
