Quarry task force to advise on east side site

City seeking members for study that could take at least a year

by Jeb Bing

The Pleasanton City Council has voted to establish an East Pleasanton Specific Plan Task Force to guide elected officials and city staff in the development of a 1,000-acre area extending out from the intersection of Valley Avenue at Busch Road.

The site, formerly used for sand and gravel mining, could see housing, business and light industrial uses.

The council is seeking representatives from surrounding neighborhoods, as well as five at-large members, also to be chosen by the council. All applicants must be Pleasanton residents.

Task force members must agree to attend at least one or two meetings a month for a year or more.

Task force members also should be capable of undertaking detailed background reading and research, working collaboratively, and have good communication skills and a balanced perspective on a wide range of viewpoints.

Those interested should submit completed applications to the City Clerk's office by 4:30 p.m., Thursday, June 7. The council will confirm the members of the task force at its June 19 meeting.

Applications are available at the City Clerk's office, 123 Main St. in Pleasanton, or can be downloaded at www.ci.pleasanton.ca.us/pdf/epspcomm.pdf. For more information, contact Planning Manager Janice Stern at 931-5605 or jstern@cityofpleasantonca.gov.
