I couldn't figure out just where these Oak Grove homes are going to be, trying to wade through the ads and argument. However, voters trying to separate spin from fact are fortunate to have today's technology. Page 60 of the Sample Ballot and Voter Information Pamphlet we received in the mail has Figure 36, showing the location of the 51 lots in question. If a voter can read a topographic map, one can see that the lots are all on the top of ridgelines - no question. One can go to Google Map/Satellite view and see the current path along the ridge lines where the lots are located. Google Map/Terrain View shows that these are indeed ridgelines between valleys. So not to be accused independently of spin, the Yes-on-D ad is technically correct that the park includes the highest ridge on the property. However, Google Earth can provide one a 3D view showing how the lots dominate about 10,000 feet of ridgeline; people in Pleasanton will see a long line of homes on the ridge. Good information has changed my view and I will now be voting No on Measure D.
Please note that I am not in the area of the development, I am not affiliated with either campaign nor the group who took this to court, and until I realized where the lots are located, had been a supporter of the "tradeoff" of lots for parkland. Not anymore.
