How can we afford to build, maintain and staff this place? The city is crying poor and demanding it's employees reduce their pay....do we really need this or could our tax money be better served towards public services? Interesting.

If the city is so poor then how come fines are not charged on some items at the library? As for closing the Senior center-obviously you're not a senior that relies on services there. I am an long time pleasanton resident and well into my 80's and look forward to the friendship and classes offered to us elderly at the center. I do have to agree with the golf course idea though.

Building and improving infrastructure such as the senior center and Firehouse arts center creates jobs and improves the quality of life that so many people in this forum value here in Pleasanton. That quality of life improves property values and increases revenue income to the city, which uses the income to pay off infrastructure investment and invest in new infrastructure that further improves quality of life... Kind of makes you wonder why we don't do that everywhere...
