Letters to the Editor-Robert Traverso

Sensible development

As a long-time resident of Davis, and one who very much enjoys our yard and landscaping, my wife and I are approaching the age where we need to seriously think about a living situation with less physical home-maintenance demands, proximity to high-quality medical care, and down-sizing our home.


The project proposed by Taormino & Associates, and on the ballot in November as Measure L, offers many of these features for the aging population in Davis in a range of housing prices. Moreover, from a General Plan perspective, it is a sensible development in a sensible location. As such, I support the project, and encourage a “Yes” vote on Measure L.
