For the first time in six years, the Lodi Planning Commission went through a complicated, little-known process requiring developers to get permission to move forward with the design of projects that add five or more new housing units to the city.

Developer John Giannoni has proposed 12 medium-density residential units on Tienda Drive. The roofs of the homes connect, but the walls of the houses do not, and they would be priced around $290,000, Giannoni said.

    Can you picture this happening in the country. Buy cheap farm land and spread it out - why?- because you bought it cheap. What about services? -There are none unless you buy them. What about increase traffic on country roads? - You ever try to farm on one? School districts buy this cheap land and there goes the neighborhood. You can't farm anywhere near children because of ag business restrictions. Churches are even worse as both want houses built around them and laws protect them with religion forcefields and "we must do it for the children" concerns. Cities expansions are predicted by a "master plan"

    Everyone always comes from "not in my back yard you don't!"

    A Master Plan could and should do better than that.

    The 290,000 could be much higher if you want. Price is always only what the public is willing to pay and at what overall cost to you and me in the long run. Keeping land as it should be for it's uses keeps costs at the market place in check

    Interesting... $290000 per unit in today's economy and all units share a common roof?

    Why would anyone pay that kind of money and have neighbors so close? Sounds like agenda 21 style thinking. Hope this gets approved as it will be interesting to see.
