I believe the options open to the City Council for the Grant Road Farm are greater than the two in Mr. Watson's opinion piece. Remember this property is in Santa Clara County. The owners and developers are requesting the City to annex the property and thus provide city services to the homes they hope to build there. The City Council need not rubber-stamp their request. They may consider how adding this property to the city limits will benefit the whole city and it's residents. They may consider NOT annexing the property. If the owners and developers want to build houses, they may have to incur the costs of providing services to their private property.
