If this is truly for the citizens of Pleasanton, why are all the cars in Hacienda Business Park? They should sprinkle some around town. The New Leaf market parket has plenty of room.

OldTimer - I assume there are at least two reasons...(1) Hacienda B-Park is walking distance from Bart and (2) they require electric car chargers - how many places would allow those to be installed and have cars permanently parked in those spots when not being used?

Maggie, Thanks for proving my point. If folks live near BART, there are already many transit options -- or walking.
The city DOES have charging stations -- downtown, at the new Safeway that I have seen personally.
And obviously you are not a retailer. It is all about getting "traffic" near or in your stores. Charging stations and people meeting at them would be welcomed by retailers, restaurants of all sizes.
