As a resident opposed to the pending project at 3950 Robin Hill, I read your Oct. 4 story regarding this opposition with great interest. I’ve been actively involved for the past two years in an attempt to get the Planning Department and the Planning Commission to enforce both the letter and intent of our hillside ordinance regarding this project.
The Robin Hill lot averages 63% in slope and may be the steepest lot ever proposed for residential development within our city. It is prudent that concerned residents pay careful attention to this project because its eventual outcome will set a precedent for future hillside development in our community. Many of us feel that if the City Council allows this project to move forward while significantly exceeding the hillside ordinance’s guidelines, the City Council may as well tear up the ordinance, and the precedent set will be a dangerous one for the future of LCF’s hillsides.
