Letter: Thinking long term

Dear Editor,

Oak Grove is a win-win for the city, residents, trail and open space advocates, schools and future generations. I have lived in Pleasanton for 42 years and have always felt that it is critical for us to think long term about what is best for Pleasanton now and for years ahead. Over the years we have worked hard to maintain our small-town character by planning for smart growth and new developments. With Oak Grove we have the chance to protect Pleasanton's ridgeline by approving a plan with only 51 home sites and 496 acres of permanently preserved open space. The property owner worked closely with environmental leaders plus trail and park advocates to assure the open space was available and accessible to the public. I strongly urge residents to vote for the future of Pleasanton by voting Yes on D.
