I am saddened to see that our mayor and two council members would sign ballot arguments that are intentionally designed to deceive Pleasanton's voters.
The majority of the 51 Oak Grove homes will be built atop the most prominent ridgelines in Pleasanton, visible throughout the city; they will NOT be 200 feet below their ridgetops.
There is no agreement between the developer and school district to donate money for schools; school fees paid, over many future years, will be paid by the lot owners at the time of building, just as any other homebuilder would pay.
The Sierra Club does NOT support this project, as the proponents would lead you to believe; the Sierra Club actually signed the opposing ballot argument against Measure D.
Homes have not yet been approved, but the lot placement (on top of ridges) has been approved. This property is NOT zoned for residential, it is merely designated as such in the General Plan; the General Plan designation can change, there are no guarantees that homes can be built, and there are no development rights.

Keep Pleasanton beautiful. Vote No on Measure D.
