Just the mention of three or more story buildings makes me sick to my stomach. I think our city government has been taken over by the developers and big business. Look at Dublin.
That whole is city is ugly, with it's tall buildings and hodge podge of structures scattered all over creation. To build like that certainly doesn't require a planning commission.

It would have to be deep into Hacienda, between BART & Hopyard near old Herald bldg. Already way too many around Santa Rita...loaded with abandoned shopping cars...certainly couldn't ask them to 'return; their carts ! If only they'd notice and attempt to 'fit in' 'when in Rome', do as they do ... simple neighborly decency. It seems it should be required that each resident must
own a $20. shopping CART with wheels, since they mostly have bicycles and no cars. Aren't WalMart shopping baskets expensive enough these days to be 'grand theft'.

Why is it that people need to live in an "ant colony", crawling all over and living on top of each other to satisfy the housing nazis's? These folks won't be happy until we are living cheek to cheek with a train station in every living room.

I was born and raised in Pleasanton.....I learned after being a resident for nearly 30 years that it is true what people say about us Pleasantonians......we are snobs!!! Let the City build what the City needs to in order to meet the needs of the current / future residents....just because you paid to much for your house and are worried about your property values does it mean that others should not be afforded the right to live and raise their family in a City such as Pleasanton.
