Sad we missed the 51 beautiful homes..PLUS open space opportunity, so 10 beautiful homes will have to do. I like top national rankings of beautiful Pleasanton......we need something to offset the massive subsidized apartment projects that will tarnish the reputation we spent decades creating. An American community should have the right to be grand. I'm glad the landowner wants to keep Pleasanton beautiful.....isn't that why we work?

We all see through your Lin family propaganda. First you are the slow growth mayor then you and Hosterman go all ga-ga for developer money. Who knew money could corrupt so effectively? The Lin family, that's who.

I've been saying all along that to keep Pleasanton beautiful and grand, we should build a wall around of all the city with big signs posted every hundred feet or so telling poor people (as well as you know who else) to stay the heck OUT!

I assume you don't want to trivialize the issue, so I'll treat your question seriously. Since the Lins own the property they should be able to do whatever they want with it. I worry a little bit about traffic flow difficulties, but a Walmart would give us P-towners greater freedom of choice when it comes to shopping for tee shirts, frozen White Castles, and those cute Chinese made chemistry sets they market as little girls' make-up kits. After all, shoppers' freedom is what the Constitution is all about.

I have a "semi-" serious question. If Planning Commission give the okeedokee on the 10 homes, does that mean P-town gets let off the hook in the law suit? I mean, after all, they are building on the land then? Since we (the citizens) can't go back in time to correct the mistakes now costing P-town litegation fees, would this be another way to stop the leak in the money bucket?
