Letter: Yes on Measure D

Dear Editor,

We have a chance to bring unprecedented benefits to the city of Pleasanton by voting Yes on Measure D in June. The Oak Grove plan approved by the City Council in 2007 was the result of four years of public review and negotiations. During this time the property owners made many concessions to improve the benefits of the project to the city.

The property is 562 acres in the southeast hills, and under the General Plan could have as many as 98 homes. The plan on the June ballot includes 51 homes on 62 acres, with 497 acres donated to the city, forming its largest park. In addition, Pleasanton will receive millions in fees to help our schools, traffic improvements, and vital city services.

This plan is a tremendous opportunity for Pleasanton. I urge you to find out the facts for yourself, and join me, a 47-year resident, in voting Yes on Measure D in June.

Bob Butler
