FAIRFIELD — A 38-home subdivision on five acres at 3933 Suisun Valley Road south of Solano Community College – a development proposal that spurred concerns from nearby residents about added traffic and other problems – won unanimous approval Wednesday by Fairfield planning commissioners.
“I really like this project,” Commissioner Lamont Thompson said before the vote.
Commissioner Perry Pattiz praised the Koros subdivision as well.
“It seems to fit right in,” he said.
But Daren Blonski, whose home is next to the proposed development, said he and other residents in the Turnstone subdivision sought more time to find solutions to problems that include added traffic and the loss of cul-de-sacs where children play.
Ben Kevan said, “We’re here not to stop the development” but to further review the proposed subdivision.
Dough Buzbee, representing project sponsor DBRE of Davis, said the development less than a mile from Interstate 80 is “smart infill growth.”
House sizes in the development are between 2,082 and 2,711 square feet. That’s about the same size as houses in Turnstone, according to the city.
Turnstone was built in 2005. A previous project was approved the next year for the Koros subdivision site but the 55-unit development proposal was never built during the housing downturn that took place amid the recession.
