Voters approve Measure L
By Anne Ternus-Bellamy
For the second time in a year, Davis residents have approved a new housing development, voting in favor of the West Davis Active Adult Community on Tuesday.
With all precincts counted shortly after midnight, Measure L had won 57.4 percent of the vote with an unknown number of absentee, provisional and conditional ballots still to be counted. All but one of the city’s 34 precincts voted in favor of the measure.
The senior housing development — slated for 74 acres of agricultural land north of Covell Boulevard and just west of Sutter Davis Hospital — will provide up to 560 dwelling units, including for-sale, single-family detached homes and affordable senior apartments, with 80 percent of units restricted to buyers and renters aged 55 and over.
