I have no opinion for and no opinion against development.
Pleasanton is what it is, love it or leave it.

The 2010 census population for Pleasanton was 70,825.
The 2014 estimated population for Pleasanton was 77,682.

That is an influx of new comers at a rate of 1,714 people every year.

If that rate of new comers continues the population of Pleasanton in year 2020 will be 87,966.

By year 2030 The population of Pleasanton will be 105,106.

There hasn't been one new school built in a very long time here in Pleasanton. The class sizes are getting larger and larger. Is there even a discussion for a new elementary, middle, or high school? Meanwhile, houses and apartments are popping up everywhere.

Good point, the rate of population increase for Pleasanton by 2030, a 25% increase in Pleasanton population over the next 14 years is far more than construction of new homes currently underway and far more than all projected new home construction.

Where will homes be constructed in Pleasanton to accommodate the influx of new comers?

I believe the potential for a higher increase is certain given the footprint of the new homes being built on Valley. Along with being particularly unattractive, they are literally within an arm-reach of each other.

I've noticed while driving to Danville along Tassajara that the new development out towards the backside of the radar station is all the same.

Cities and developers are moving away from any sort of space between dwellings and packing in as many as possible. The reasons for doing this are obvious i.e., more tax $'s. People are snatching them up too...!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
