City housing meeting tonight on Stanley Blvd. property

Property owners seeking to be part of city's rezoning plan

A community meeting will be held starting at 6:30 p.m. tonight to discuss the possible uses under-developed property on Stanley Boulevard across from homes on Reflections Drive.

Owners of the Irby-Kaplan-Zia property have asked that their site be looked at again to be rezoned to accommodate residential units as part of the Housing Element Update.

Last year, the City Council rezoned 70 acres in different parts of the city for high density apartments to meet requirements by state housing authorities and a court order to provide more housing for very low, low and middle income residents.

Although the Irby-Kaplan-Zia site was initially considered, the property was not included in the final cut.

Jennifer Wallis, the city's associate planner, said she sent out 1,488 notices about tonight's meeting, which included all properties within 1,000 feet of the site

The property owners have not suggested what kind of a development they are considering for the site.

Wallis said the purpose of tonight's meeting will be to review the Housing Element Update and to hear views from the community on what they'd like to see on the property.

The meeting will be held in the Pleasanton Operations Services Center at 3333 Busch Road.

Why do we insist on building more structures and reducing wildlife? Sooner (rather than later) more deer and other animals will come to residential areas, game control and the police will be called or the animals will be hit by vehicles. Thankfully we still have parks, but let's try and preserve what little nature still gives to us since it can take it away with no notice.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
