My husband Jim and I have put a 10 percent deposit down for a living unit in Stoneridge Creek. We are optimistic that the project will eventually happen, but we hope the process will move forward at the Aug. 24 special Pleasanton City Council meeting. I spoke at the Pleasanton Planning Commission Meeting when they approved the SEIR and other documents to move the Staples Ranch Project forward. My husband spoke at the June 15 Pleasanton council meeting urging the City Council to move forward. It was a disappointment that the item was pulled from the June 15 agenda.
We have lived in Dublin since 1978 and love Dublin, but we have decided to move to Pleasanton because of the Stoneridge Creek project, which is unique in the Tri-Valley. It will give us an opportunity to live independently and yet have support if needed in the future. We can still participate in our many activities since Pleasanton is so close to Dublin. We have begun to participate in more Pleasanton activities in anticipation of our move. We are members of the Museum On Main and we bought a brick for the new Firehouse Arts Center. We continue to enjoy many of the Pleasanton restaurants. We also have a strong connection to Pleasanton because one of our granddaughters lives there.
I hope the Pleasanton council will consider all of the advantages of the Staples Ranch Project and keep moving forward in a positive manner. The project is good for Pleasanton and the Tri-valley.
