Did 5000 people show up at the joint workshop of the Planning Commission and City Council before this was voted upon? Or will we see another divisive petition drive?

If our City Council cannot read the pulse of Pleasanton on growth they should all get voted out. Pleasanton wants less traffic, is concerned about the full schools, and thinks Dublin is ugly!
5000 people should not be required at every meeting for the council to remember this!

I watched this meeting and don't think this project was unreasonable. It is BARTS property and the revenue supports the whole BART project. But am very worried if this is the begining of what will happen to Hacienda.

This article is misleading. It confused a workshop including the planning commission and the city council, which is the beginning of a discussion about Hacienda with a council meeting where a rental complex was approved near the mall. Two different meetings with two different outcomes.

The drawing depicted are not of the complex approved.
