City Council to vote Wednesday on high-density housing plan

New zoning changes would set aside 73 acres for affordable housing developers

by Jeb Bing

The Pleasanton City Council will hold back-to-back meetings starting next Wednesday to consider and likely approve a detailed plan to rezone 73 acres of available properties in various parts of the city to allow the construction of more than 2,000 apartments in two- and three-story buildings. Because of New Year's holiday schedules, the City Council has moved its regular Tuesday night meeting for this week to Wednesday, Jan. 4. The second meeting will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 10.
