CHICO, Calif. - Butte County Supervisors decided to give the green light to the developers who want to put 18 new homes on Stanley Avenue, south of Chico.
People who already live there are not happy. Many are worried about the new traffic problems this could create and some say county leaders just didn't listen to them.
Some neighbors say they're going to keep fighting, if not to prevent the new homes, to at least have a say in what they look like.
Butte County Supervisor Steve Lambert said he is hopeful the developer will work with the neighbors, to build an area that everyone's happy with.
Lambert says in light of the Camp Fire there's a major need for housing, and people need to get used to the fact that closer quarters is the new norm.
The original plan was 21 new houses, so people living on Stanley Avenue may be happier to hear that now it's just 18 new homes going in.
