The city is close to completing a draft environmental impact report on a 93-home development near Helen Putnam Park, the Argus Courier is reporting.
Davidon Homes, a Walnut Creek-based developer, first proposed the project at D Street and Windsor Drive in 2004.
But it was delayed by the recession as well as the city’s preparation of the long-term water plan, according to the paper.
At that time, a group called Petalumans for Responsible Planning raised concerns about impacts on nearby homes, land and the historic red barns now located on the property formerly known as Scott Ranch.
As a result of the feedback, Davidon is considering a more scaled down version of the development, which would have 66 homes. The draft EIR is set to be completed by the end of the year.
