Growth Politics


While there is always a strong debate about city growth in Davis, sometimes reflected in NIMBY attitudes, at times the debate blossoms into political action, with city council, judicial decisions or voters making decisions that affect the future expansion or careful cultivation of Davis. The end result of all this is reflected in the annexation history of Davis. See also Town History.

From 2000 to 2007, an attempt was made to build Dixon Downs, a horse racetrack with plans to expand into a hotel resort and retail plaza. Located at Pedrick Road and Interstate 80 in Dixon, the nearby nature of the major development was a concern for many Davis residents. The City of Davis took action and filed a lawsuit against Dixon in Solano County Superior Court (case #[WWW]FCS028771). For more on Dixon Downs, read that entry.
