Safeway, Clorox plans for new jobs, development go to City Council tonight

Both firms seek approvals for new buildings as they expand their Pleasanton presence

The Pleasanton City Council, in its final meeting before the Nov. 2 municipal election, is expected to approve to measures tonight that promise to bring hundreds of new jobs and millions of dollars in development to the city next year.

On tap at tonight's meeting is a final approval of a sixth building in a five-building corporate campus near Hopyard Road and Stoneridge Drive that is being acquired by the Clorox Co. Clorox is planning to move 750 employees from its Oakland headquarters into the complex, recently vacated by the now-closed Washington Mutual Bank.

At the same time, the council is expected to approve a plan by Safeway Corp. of Pleasanton to build one of its super-size "Lifestyle" stores at Bernal and Valley avenues, next to the northbound Bernal exit from I-680. Safeway, which plans to open the new store before Thanksgiving next year, also will build a retail complex on the site, part of a 35-acre parcel owned by South Bay Construction.

The council meeting will start at 7 p.m. in the Civic Center, 200 Old Bernal Ave.
