Clearly, the recession is over in the local housing sector. New development could bring over 1,300 new homes to the San Antonio Road and El Camino Real area, so many that a new school may be needed to accommodate the new population.

The only thing I can think of to stop piecemeal development is to take over all the property in the San Antonio area, but this won't happen nor should it ever.
European style development could be built, homes, flats, cottages, units, attached, semi attached or detached. All kinds of housing units, some with shared space other with private space or a private yard.
Most European style communities are always close to transit or car to transit friendly. One important factor seeing that I have lived overseas, close to shops, shops and more shops. Yes sometimes you have to drive to the big shops. Use to work to get the following, Milk, cash, a drink, take out, bakery, coffee, veggies, buy a trip, see a lawyer, swim, work out, city under a tree, church, pick up wine, get a video, arrange repairs, pay bills, register my car, work on the computer at the business center, attend a outdoor movie, buy the newspapers.
My open space around me, back garden, the square in from, down the street, the little church green, the walking path next to the creek, the park and golf course on the other side of the highway, walking paths outside of where I lived. Most of the time I spent inside the garden, I had no front yard. Today I find having a front yard useless, you aren't going to have people over and sit in your front yard.
If you want help with one style of development, use this. The Lanes small walking lanes with shops and housing, shops with living units that are owned by the shop keepers, it all looks the same but each owner has a different kind of shop, buildings are in different colors. The place is well know to visit. I would prefer to see some of this area be built to handle this type of development
