The Pleasanton Planning Commission will hold a public hearing starting at 7 p.m. tonight to consider a bid to build 50 upscale homes on the 194-acre Lund Ranch in the hills southwest of Sunol Boulevard near the I-680 exit.
To reach the proposed development, the builder, Greenbriar Homes, needs to construct a road using Sunset and Sycamore Creek roadways to reach Sunol Boulevard, or by extending Lund Ranch Road from Independence Boulevard, with homeowners using Junipero Street to reach Sunol Boulevard.
Greenbriar's preferred route using Sunset Way would require building 50 yards of a roadway to the development that would cross a steep slope. That plan would fall under the terms of voter-approved Measure PP, which does not allow construction on slopes with 25% grades or more.
The commission meeting will be held in the City Council chamber in the Pleasanton Civic Center, 200 Old Bernal Ave.
