Would someone please explain why there is NOT a moratorium on building since we do not have enough water for our existing community? This should be the Pleasanton City Council's FIRST priority to fix by whatever means an adequate water supply. Perhaps Zone 7 should be merged/acquired/taken over for inadequate planning since the last drought. And we as residents who for over 30 years have installed low flow toilets/shower heads/appliances and drip water systems are suppose to let our plants die. This is crazy.

TO concerned about water,

Yes we should stop all building and we should also have a moratorium on any event that uses water.
Street Fair
County Fair
All youth sporting events
And so on.

That would be about as crazy as you.

We need more development in Pleasanton, not less. Water is a short term issue and not relevant.

John,

What in the heck makes you thing the water issue is short term? Immigration is completely out of control in this country, and the Tri-Valley is flooded with immigrants. The water supply is also diminishing. Can't tell you how unhappy I am that I have to quit having a green lawn, and now carrying buckets of water, and staring at mellow yellow because of the flood of immigrants.

Regarding the new development -- why in the hell did the Council approve a huge sign for the used-car lot. Is Pleasanton now trying to look like Dublin, Hayward and Los Angeles? Really pathetic.

" Is Pleasanton now trying to look like Dublin"

I sure hope so. Schools have passed up Pleasanton with smaller class sizes and better test scores. Would love to move there, but have been outbid too many times.

As for water, yes it is short term due to the drought. It also has nothing to do with immigrants. What do you have against immigrants?

Can you believe some people in Pleasanton actually opposed building an AT&T cell tower at the corner of Stanley and Bernal? Why on earth? Who opposes cell towers?

John,

I don't have anything against immigrants, so don't give me any of that anti-immigrant crap. I do have a major issue with our out-of-control immigration levels, because that is a major contributor to the rapid increase in the U. S. population. If it continues at these rates, it is inescapable that our qualify of life will continue to degrade.
