we reside in Autumn Glen near Orloff Park area..........tear those incomplete buildings down. We don't need anymore reason for cut through traffic from Santa Rita to Morganfield to Kolln to Valley. We have enough speeders and stop sign runners as it is. The speed limit is 25 and I have seen folks go near the park at 40 MPH.

Bobart99:

We like the slides, and I don't see any increased traffic because of them. Santa Rita and Valley are busy roads by where you live, but that has more to do with the transfer station and Alisal than with the Shadow Cliff slides.

Keep the slides, the kids enjoy them!

Go with the dog park idea. There is only one dog park in Pleasanton and it is far from downtown, not to mention it is not a very nice dog park and narrow. No one is ever there and we have to drive all the way to Livermore or San Ramon.

Leave those structures as they are. They belong to the owner. This is about property rights! If the park had just let the developer build what he wanted to originally, the project would be done and he'd be making money like a good old fashioned hard working American!

We should sell all our parks in Pleasanton and let the future owners decide if the land should remain (private) parks (with market-driven entrance fees) or develop them as they see fit.

Get the government out of the parks business! Parks are a total waste of my tax dollars! I never use them, why should I pay for them? Just more suburban welfare!
