Forest Green Project ~ HISTORY   

The site known as Forest Green is located above Jana Vista street, off Clark Road in El Sobrante, and is bordered to the east by the Clark Road Project and Clark-Boas trail, and to the west by La Colina Road. The northern boundary is about two-thirds of the way up the hill, where a line of eucalyptus runs east-west. The land above that is privately owned.

The site was formerly known as the Johnson property. It is our understanding that Johnson sought to place a trailer park on the property but was unable to clear this with the city. He then sold the property, selling the upper portion to a doctor and the lower portion to a development company (we've been told that the doctor had wanted to purchase the entire property, but that it was split out of spite because of the denial of permits for the trailer park and that there was an understanding that the purchasers would continue to try to develop it). Since then a few proposals have been made but only one made it as far as the EIR stage. That DEIR expired in 2010, so any attempt to develop that site would have to start again from scratch.

Currently the site has a horse stable located in the upper south-west corner, and is otherwise undeveloped and untouched - prime habitat for those flora and fauna desiring thick oak cover and access to water.
