The Pleasanton City Council will host a reception at 6:30 tonight for incoming and outgoing members of various city committee and commissions.
The reception, to be held in the Civic Center at 200 Old Bernal Ave., will preceed the 7 p.m. regular council meeting, the only one this month.
At the start of the meeting, a group led by Sachin Bhayani plans to seek answers to its protest of the narrowing of Owens Drive in front of the BART station to a single lane.
Several residents asked the council to reverse that traffic change in December.
"This is by far the worst problem people of Pleasanton are suffering everyday for more than six months," Bhayani said, noting that it's still not not on the council's agenda where the issue can be publicly addressed.
Th council also will consider a proposed ordinance that would amend the municipal code to update definititions and simplify the list of permitted and conditionally permitted land uses in commercial, office and industrial districts.
The proposed ordinance, approved last month by the Planning Commission, would make it easier for property owners and applicants to identify where a
specific land use is permitted and to see broad land use trends in Pleasanton.
