Red Phone: Dear Just Curious, There is an area off Mesa Road on Wildflower Court that is being considered for development. Developer Duffy & Guenther has proposed a new 42-unit single-family residential development. The Gilroy Planning Commission was expected to make a recommendation to the City Council to approve the 16-acre Terra Bella project during its Thursday night meeting. Results of the meeting were not available by press time.

The developer originally wanted to build custom homes ranging from 16,700 square feet to 53,800 square feet, but with the downturn in the housing market, the developer opted to abandon the original plan in favor of a project design with smaller homes, according to Planning Commission documents.

Check back for updates on this housing project.

Illegal business?

“I live in a residential area. We think that someone across the street from us may be running an illegal business. I can’t prove it. It looks like he is (working with manufacturing materials). My wife and I both are having trouble breathing. It’s been going for months.

Red Phone: Dear Between A Rock And Hard Place, Since the business is outside the city of Gilroy, Red Phone contacted County Code Enforcement Officer Jim Lanz, who said that upon inspection it appeared the business could be illegal. But he wasn’t sure. He said he would send a letter to the property owners letting them know of the complaints.
