Is the Mural on an Eyesore Warehouse a Joke?

Has the Pleasanton City Council and/or Planning Commission heard the phase "you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear"? You also can't make a piece of art out of a tumble-down, ramshackle, galvanized metal siding warehouse. The Valley Plumbing buildings are an eyesore and that warehouse is an especially bad eyesore. The owner of Valley Plumbing should move his business to a light-industrial area, make a bundle off selling that property, and it should then be redeveloped, along with a number of other eyesores on Peters Ave,into something vital, attractive and suitable for our downtown (i.e. City Hall, Library, theater, ...). The mural looks like it would be very attractive, but a dilapidated warehouse does not a "canvas" make. Livermore is redeveloping their downtown and Pleasanton is painting eyesores.
