"I have been using more Baccharis pilularis 'Pigeon Point' up here in the East Bay of S.F. It seems to be an easy evergreen plant. So far, so good.
Has anyone had any problems with it after it has established?
Also what is your favorite…"
Hi thanks for your note. No I am not at Danville b/c I left to take care of my twins full time, at least until they're 2. Congratulations on completing your LA Cert!!! awesome. I'm no aware of what is being built in south danville. There's not a lot of land left so are you referring to the site across from Marshalls on Camino Ramon? If so, 17,000 sf is not that big - that site is huge.
Hello again Deborah. I gave birth to fraternal twin girls in March 09 and taking an indefinite break from the program. I also resigned from the Town to be a stay at home mom, at least until the girls are in preschool. Then...who knows what is next. I enjoyed the classes alot but not sure if it is the right path for me going forward. Hope to see you around town. Keep in touch! Probably shoudl update this page.
Hi Deborah! Great to "see" you even just through here. Well those are some big questions that is probably better discussed live if we get a chance. There's no easy answer to the question of wide roads, stormwater issues & drainage. Yes cities are wedded to as much road as they feel needed to push traffic through. Traffic is one of the top three complaints in town, and likely other places too. Cars are a reality or at minimum transportation is a reality. People can talk about "smart growth" all they want but once land use patterns are set it is hard to change. Plus enough people have no interest in living in high density areas, though they may even design these products! So how do we move people & goods...and water :) I feel the "new" C3 stormwater stuff is experimental (like pushing products that are untried) on one hand and old news on the other (essentially trying to add as much landscaping as possible to supposedly filter water - great in concept). As for topo maps, Danville's town offices can print some topo/contour maps for you, but given it covers town-wide they are not the contours you might need for private property. Give me a call if you have a more specific property you are looking at if in Danville, I can see what we have from the subdivision files for you.
