It is about time that we are building more low income housing. We do not need more parks and retail! I am already furious that the city approved for a multitude of sports parks off the Bernal exit when this land was already zoned for housing and bought from Greenbriar homes. As a Pleasanton resident, if you want to "give back to your community" then start thinking about the lower income families that live here and are struggling to make ends meet!

And just where are all the kis who live in these places going to go to school? ALL the area schools are full! When they built the apartments on Owens the developers said no kids would live there, it would be young 20 somethings taking bart to work, wrong. More apartments means more students and no schools to put them in, Poor decision Planning commission.
