Is anyone in Pleasanton government aware that we're in a drought and don't have water for new houses? Why not just say no?

"...and don't have water for new houses? "

Because it isn't true. The amount of water used by residences is negligible. The truth is some people are just NIMBYs, against all development and will use any excuse to try to stop all development.

Residents of Mission Park, specifically Independence Drive and Junipero need to show up tonight to make sure that the traffic from this subdivision doesn't end up down our already too busy streets.

"The amount of water used by residences is negligible"------WHAT!! Thank you Mr water czar. Starting tomorrow I'm going back to my 2013 water usage, who knew that the drought was never a reality so with your approval I want full reimbursement for all my dead landscaping and then go ahead and tell the planning commission "full speed ahead" there is no drought in this town !!

I heard that Greenbriar submitted plans to the city in 2002, the city hired an EIR consultant in June 2003 and the city management refused to submit its plans to the Planning Commission for TWELVE years after the EIR consultant was hired in 2003 when Pico, Ayala, Brozosky, Campbell and Hosterman were on the city council.

There is no excuse for purposefully holding up a development plan.

It would make it seen that the bottleneck has to with who is managing the city. All of the fees collected for so called excess water usage need to be given to this developer. I never heard of Deborah Acosta holding up a developer for over a decade and refusing for over a decade to put the development proposal on calendar to move the process along. What ineptitude.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
