“If Brentwood doesn’t develop the land, won’t it be taken by Antioch?”

Antioch continue to make its views on expansion clear–Antioch is not interested in expanding outward. This is the same fear-mongering we heard the last time a developer tried to expand the ULL. We can’t let developers trade our quality of life for a manufactured fear. In addition, allowing a poorly planned development that Brentwood doesn’t need isn’t the only way to ensure Antioch doesn’t encroach on Brentwood. We can pursue policies such as a community separator (which has been successful in Sonoma County) or an MOU between the cities (which has been successful in Solano County) to ensure that the land remains farmland, and the two cities actually stay separate.
