Letters: Keep our park

Dear Editor,

"No on D" signs have popped up all over our west neighborhood so I was curious to see this property. However, when I asked a few of these homeowners where this property was, no one seemed to know. One good neighbor went online and printed "Save Pleasanton Hills" info and brought it to me. After reading the flier I still don't know where the property is, but was surprised that a "9000 square foot Oakland Hills" homeowner would give permission for the use of his home in such a negative manner.

Years ago people were griping about the "hotel on the ridge" and now with all the landscaping, you can hardly find it.

The 58 trees that are proposed to be cut down will be replaced with thousands of trees and shrubs, which will be a great improvement over the brown dry weeds that pose a fire hazard.

How does this group expect a property owner since 1970 to just turn over their land so a handful of people can enjoy the view. If you want to preserve this land, fine, buy it.
