From Braddock and Logan:
On Tuesday evening, the Dublin City Council approved the revised Moller Ranch project, a 370 unit residential development located at the City’s northeast boundaries. The project helps to pave the way for an agreement between Braddock and Logan and the East Bay Regional Park District on 1615 acres of open space to the north and east of the project site, helping to expand the Park District’s footprint surrounding the community of Dublin.
The Moller Ranch project lies east of Tassajara Road within the City of Dublin’s Eastern Dublin Specific Plan area and is located in a small, valley, tucked away from view. In addition to the reduction in dwelling units from 425 to 370, the project also lowered its density from medium density to low density, which is more in keeping with the setting on the edge of Dublin.
“The Moller Ranch project will preserve the natural surroundings of the area and will be an attractive location for homebuyers," said Andy Byde, Project Manager for Braddock and Logan. "We are also excited that we are in discussions with the East Bay Regional Park District about the opportunity to add such an incredible amount of acreage to their growing open space network around Dublin."
Braddock and Logan's offer of acreage to EBRPD will be directly adjacent to the north and east boundaries of the project site and will be located in both Contra Costa and Alameda counties. Several local and state lawmakers have been involved in the ongoing discussions to bring forward additional open space, including State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, State Senator Mark Desaulnier and Dublin Mayor Tim Sbranti.
"The City of Dublin is pleased with the design of Moller Ranch project and how it integrates well with the natural surroundings and helps to promote Dublin's relationship to the wine region through its landscape efforts," said Mayor Sbranti.
"Further, we are so delighted that EBRPD and Braddock and Logan are working to add a tremendous amount of open space surrounding Dublin. We have more than 4700 acres of parks and open space in and around our community and the prospect of increasing the open space area by one-third will only benefit the region," added Sbranti.
Ayn Wieskamp, EBRPD Board Member said: "We appreciate Dublin’s commitment to preserving open space and we value our strong working relationship with the City of Dublin.”
