Thanks to a united opposition by EBCNPS and other environmental allies including Save Mt. Diablo and The Greenbelt Alliance, the “New Farm” development project in the Tassajara Valley (Part of our “East Dublin and Tassajara” BPPA) has been withdrawn. In its place, the developer has proposed a smaller project that is being called “Tassajara Parks.” EBCNPS is reviewing the details of the proposed project and will have more to report in the coming weeks.
