Did the preschool at the corner of Bernal and First Street close? I haven't noticed any children there or cars either.

7PM is a very busy time at new leaf, Wayne's Sushi and the yogurt place. How did they reach the conclusion that the school traffic will not interfere with other businesses?

per the article

"The daycare/preschool center will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, with after-school programs held from 1 to 6:30 p.m. weekdays. "

Really not liking pre schools/day cares in a shopping center, what a cluster!!! The Pleasanton planning commission continues to amaze me!!

Map and others, if you have concerns please let the Planning commission know. Not one resident wrote in with any concerns or attended the commission meeting to share concerns even though residents received notification of the meeting.

The Planning Commission can only assume that neighbors are OK with proposal if no one takes time to write in or attend meeting. Your voice, if you have concerns, often drives change. Blog postings, after the fact, do not drive change.

on the basis of the name alone, Genius Kids", I'm happy it is gone.

If you have a problem with a day care on a shopping center, check out the pre school next to a liquor store on Stoneridge.

Do we (you) know how many will attend??...and will all ages be picked up at the same time...I doubt it. It's a huge lot. Competent drivers should not have a problem.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
