Guess that "small town feel" just became a grope by big business putting its hands all over Pleasanton.

@Sharon - It's called jobs, what you need to thrive, it puts more dollars into our city so we can maintain the likes of Main St. etc.

So what will happen to the Safeway offices once the expected staff slashing take place? Expanding auto dealership - I drive to where the sales tax is less.

Huh? - Sales taxes on a car purchase is based on your address, not the location of the dealership. Web Link

I've been in Pleasanton for 19 years. No more small town.... Very sad. We are now just an annex of Dublin as we are building in the same manner. Can't tell where one stops an another begins.

To the people who say added one building and re doing a car dealership makes us not "a small town " anymore, I would disagree. The small town feel , I think still excists based on the low population, close community and great schools! You need jobs to sustain this "feel". As a 33 year resident of Pleasanton, I think we are growing at a slow , but healthy rate. I do though, worry about the Bernal Properity that's still not developed. If that is a business park, great, less homes, but if it is mostly homes.... Then that's a lot of people added to our "small town. "

Jeff,

Dublin schools now have higher test scores than Pleasanton and they're building plenty of new houses.

Jeff, the Bernal property is protected by a voter approved plan for it that excludes houses and commercial. It would require a majority vote to be able to change that

Workday will be bought out by Oracle in a few years. David Duffield does not know how to retain an independent company. Look what happened to Peoplesoft.
