Antioch continues 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. Brentwood and 10,000 Antioch voters are united in upholding our ULL’s and preserving open space.
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. A Memorandum of Understanding Concerning Boundary/Open Space Between Cities of Antioch and Brentwood is in force until October 2022. The MOU states that the area of SPA-2 is:
characterized by a series of key hills and ridges that form a natural boundary between the two communities
We can continue to pursue policies that protect the area and keep the land as a community separator beyond 2022.
