LIVERMORE -- Livermore city council members will discuss on Monday whether to approve a large-scale subdivision of homes, townhouses, and apartments planned for just north of Lawrence Livermore Laboratory.

Developer SummerHill Homes has requested the development of 465 residential units, two neighborhood parks, open space, pedestrian paths, and trails for 35 acres of vacant land on the east side of Brisa Street and South Vasco Road. The proposal includes construction of single-family detached homes, and three-story townhomes and apartments in a 253-lot subdivision.

The five-phase project, according to the city, was originally discussed in 2007 as part of the Brisa Neighborhood Plan approval process, but didn't move forward at that time due to the economic downturn.

The Livermore Planning Commission unanimously approved the project on Dec. 3.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at City Council Chambers, 3575 Pacific Ave.
