Cultural Plan Update

The Community Services Department is updating Pleasanton's Cultural Plan from 1998, which had six goals including the development of the Firehouse Arts Center.

Community workshops are being held to get input from residents; the third one is scheduled for 6 p.m., Monday, June 24, at the Firehouse Arts Center, 4444 Railroad Ave. At the meeting feedback from the two April workshops will be presented. The draft plan will be shared with the Pleasanton community in October.

For more information or to comment on the process, contact Community Services Manager Michele Crose at 931-5347 or

Maintenance at Senior Center

The Pleasanton Senior Center will close for two weeks for routine maintenance from Monday, June 24, through Sunday, July 7, reopening July 8 for its regular programs.

The center's main hall is currently closed for day use until June 21 for minor construction. The lunch program has been relocated to the lobby area of the Senior Support Program of the Tri-Valley on the premises, and daytime exercise classes are being held at the Veterans Memorial Building at 301 Main St. Drop-in classes and meetings are being relocated, rescheduled or suspended. All other center programming remains unaffected, and evening exercise classes are continuing as scheduled.

Work on the main hall includes resurfacing the floor, and other cleaning and maintenance projects.

Santa Rita closure Monday

Santa Rita Road will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians at the Union Pacific Railroad tracks from 6 a.m. Monday until about 5 p.m. Tuesday to reconstruct the rail crossing.

Southbound traffic will be detoured via Valley Avenue to Stanley Boulevard, and back to Santa Rita Road/Main Street; northbound will be detoured along the same route. Concrete barriers will be installed on Santa Rita Road on both sides of the tracks to ensure that motorists do not attempt to cross.

The Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) train schedule will not be affected by the construction, which will begin Monday after the last morning ACE train passes through the crossing; the tracks will be re-installed before the afternoon ACE schedule.
