The Pleasanton Planning Commission is set to hold a workshop Wednesday to discuss a landowner’s proposal to split their Foothill Road parcel into six lots with new houses.
Jitender Makkar, on behalf of One Odevelopment LLC, seeks permission for a development plan and rezoning to allow the new six-home subdivision at 2188 Foothill Road, at the southwest corner of the intersection with Longview Drive.
The 12-acre parcel is designated for low-density residential and zoned for agriculture in the West Foothill Road Corridor Overlay District.
The proposal also calls for a new bridge for access to the site from Longview Drive and a new public trail that could ultimately connect to the city’s Augustin Bernal Community Park.
City staff has concerns about the number of lots and size of homes in the proposal in light of the site’s steep slope, impacts to creeks and wildlife, geotechnical hazards and other environmental reasons.
Wednesday night’s workshop is designed to give the commission and public a chance to provide early input to city staff and the applicant before the project proposal moves further along in the city’s consideration process.
The meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. inside the council chamber at the Pleasanton Civic Center, 200 Old Bernal Ave.
