Even as legal arguments continue over the city's refusal to approve their bid to build 51 custom homes on their hillside Oak Grove property, the owners of the 562-acre site will go before the Pleasanton Planning Commission tonight seeking to build only 10 homes there.
Landowners Frederic and Jennifer Lin, represented by developer James Tong, are seeking to subdivide the property into 10 large lots for single-family custom homes with no commonly held property or open space dedication. The lots would vary in size from 16 to 214 acres and would be accesses by way of a 25-foot-wide gated private road extending from the end of Hearst Drive, which is now barricaded.
Another gated emergency vehicle access road is proposed to connect the site to Grey Eagle Court in the Grey Eagle neighborhood, also a gated community located at the end of Crellin Road.
Tonight's meeting, which will start at 7 p.m. and is open to the public, is an informal workshop session where no action will be taken by the Planning Commission. It will be held in the City Council chambers in the Pleasanton Civic Center, 200 Old Bernal Ave.
