Proposed high density housing is being pushed onto the Pleasanton community again under the mask of affordable housing, and forced by a questionable Housing Coalition who's agendas seem to profit developers. Yes there is a need for affordable housing. but, as you know, that term is relative. Affordable housing yes, High density, NO. Schools will become even more crowded. Class sizes will have to increase. utilities will increase. Traffic has become worse and will get worse. There is enough affordable housing in nearby towns and areas without having to force it in Pleasanton. Record forclosed homes are available and affordable. But We all know it's not about whats right, its about what is proffitable. Notice all the development in the 580 area. New outlet stores, more Safeways per a sq mile. More Targets HMMMM, seems like there is a plan. This area is on its way to becoming the next San Jose. I am sure there will Be a Proposed Arena in the future. Get involved and voice your objection to high density affordable housing. Use Forums like this. Talk about it to your Friends, In your Mothers clubs, with parents at your kids sporting events, at church. Remember your invovment will affect your kids future quality of life in there home town.
Thanks for listening
