Wow, Jeb, I didn't know your love for Signature ran so deep. Do you feel the same about all tax dodgers? Signature never paid their fair share of school building taxes at a cost of $2.50 per square foot. The contract that is currently being litigated was negotiated because they reneged on the prior contract. Why don't you look into allegations posted here that they never paid their water bill to the city and received preferential treatment from the City Manager who was married to their chief counsel? Oh, that's right. Said City Manager is or was your boss. Pleasanton was just fine before Signature came here. They are probably the business that has done the least in terms of community service that ever operated in Pleasanton. And I don't think you need to bow down to them since they earned huge profits developing here. Signature properties and your boss' husband are a bunch of crooks.

What are they fighting about? Ruby Hill is sold out, so Signature's motivation to build the school is gone. PUSD never wanted the school and now the court has said they're not legally entitled (or obligated) to the school, so they are covered. PUSD now gets to hold the land and sell it during the next "up" housing market. Signature's off the hook to build it. PUSD is off the hook to operate it. That's probably what both sides wanted in the first place. What is there to appeal? What is there left to talk about?

Signature will get the land to cover the cost of the legal fees... they will build more houses there...there will be more kids in our overcrowded schools... and the community gets screwed again.
Strange loyalties Jeb.
