CHICO, Calif. - The Butte County Board of Supervisors gave final approval for the housing project on Stanley Avenue.

"It's just not good what they're letting happen," Leiker said.

People living along Stanley Avenue are upset about the county's plan to develop their neighborhood.

Doug Leiker has lived on this street for many years. he said all the extra traffic is what concerns him.

"Its more about public safety these streets out here you can't go by the streets two cars directly passing you gotta slow way down and you gotta pull almost over to the gravel sometimes to the gravel to get by going in opposite directions," Leiker said.

Board Chair Steve Lambert said he is hopeful the developer will work with the neighbors, to build an area that's aesthetically nice.

"There's opportunity its good I think its good especially in light of campfire and in need of housing and before the campfire we had a real need for housing so I think its important to let people do that and unfortunately we get used to our neighborhoods looking a certain way and things change," Lambert said.

David Gallo lives on Stanley Avenue too. He went to all the community meetings and felt the board didn't listen to their concerns.

"It's the traffic it's the green line it's kinda just the horror of the whole thing. some people have lived out here their whole lives and they've seen changes but most of the changes have been unobtrusive and these are gonna be small lots there's not gonna be room for trees and shrubs and so forth so they're gonna kinda stand out like a sore thumb," Gallo said.

But Leiker is not giving up... he said he still plans to fight to have a say in what the development will look like.

"It might be a dead horse it might be all for nothing but got nothing to lose at this point since we got our butts kicked by the county...it doesn't fit the character of the neighborhood that's the bottom line they snuck it in via the open space which they didn't do appropriately at all and it leaves a sour taste in my mouth," Leiker said.
