What's going on?

uh-oh.jpg Back in November 2005, Measure P stated that Pittsburg was voting for open space protection and traffic reduction. Unfortunately, just the opposite is happening and there is a push for more development which, will lead to more traffic. The recently proposed draft Hillside Development Ordinance allows for massive development above the 500-foot elevation!

Don't let the City of Pittsburg give away our hills to the Seeno Family with their plan to build up to 1,650 sprawl units and estate mansions in our hills! This irresponsible development will add 13,000 extra car trips PER DAY to our local roads, hidden costs to taxpayers, air pollution, and destroy wildlife habitat.

Help improve the image and quality of life in our city. SAVE OUR HILLS!!
