Letters: Keep open space - Yes on D

Dear Editor,

I am writing regarding Measure D. I am concerned that people have misleadingly been told that voting against Measure D will mean no development in the hills.

If "No on D" wins, it will mean that the city of Pleasanton will lose almost 500 acres of open space AND there will more than likely be more than the 51 houses planned for these hills. The property owners have a right to develop their land, and a new plan will probably mean more houses and less parkland. Measure D is not a choice between building on the hills or not building. Measure D is an opportunity to minimize the number of houses and maximize the open space.

I have been up on the hills of this property and have seen that this plan limits many of the 51 houses to one story and proposes to nest them within the trees, preserving the view from Pleasanton. Please join me in voting Yes on this plan so we can keep the benefits of all this open space for Pleasanton.
