Letter: Oak Grove 'environmentally destructive'

Dear Editor,

The Oak Grove housing development plan is the most atrocious plan ever approved by a Pleasanton City Council. It is so environmentally destructive that the local, regional, state and national Sierra Club oppose the plan.

The developer plans to cut up to 43 feet off the top of our ridges and place homes there that can be up to 12,500 square feet, not counting the garage space. They have sued our city and our citizens to keep us from voting to stop this development. We need to stop Oak Grove from destroying our beautiful hillsides that make Pleasanton so unique.

Please vote No on Measure D.

Nicole Johnson
