This lawsuit challenged the EIR for a series of related residential project just east of the Town
of Danville along Camino Tassajara near Alamo Creek. In addition to the project's expected traffic impacts, it also
impinged on habitat for the endangered California Red-legged Frog and could interfere with that species recovery.
A settlement was reached involving, among other things, additional steps to try to promote transit
use and carpooling by project residents. The other major settlement provision was protecting potential red-legged from
habitat areas and migration corridors so that the species might have a better chance of recovering some of its lost habitat
range. However, it must be conceded that the successof these measures is somehwat speculative. Only time will
tell the extent to which this project's potentially damaging impacts have been reduced.
