Public asked to comment on proposed county needs assessment plan

Document available online through Dec. 22

by Jeb Bing

The cities of Pleasanton, Dublin and Livermore have completed a draft report for the Eastern Alameda Human Services Needs Assessment, which will soon be available for public review.

The report, assembled by Resource Development Associates, reviews current human services, identifies gaps in services, and addresses opportunities for improving services in the Tri-Valley based upon input elicited through focus groups, human service agency staff and clients, public schools, the recent U.S. Census and others.

Among the human service needs in the Tri-Valley that are included in the document are cultural competency and language barriers, access to medical care, homelessness, transportation issues, substance abuse, children's needs and daycare, senior needs, the needs of those with disabilities, AIDS awareness, prevention and services, and more.

The report can be reviewed online on the city of Pleasanton website at from today through Dec. 22. Public comments will be considered for incorporation into the final draft, which will be available in early 2012.

Comments should be directed to Peter Neely at or (510) 488-4345 x113.
