City Staff needs to back off the opposition to the expansion of the Carpenter's training facility expansion project. This business already exists on the property that they own and has been a viable entity serving our community for many years. I have personally worked with their staff on projects for the training of engineers and other design professionals in the Bay Area. They simply need more suitable space to conduct their programs.

Making excuses to delay the progress of legitimate development is an underhanded tactic that deters future investment in Pleasanton. It's a business district! This is a business upgrade! Let it proceed as proposed. So it's not a Costco, Ikea or highrise housing; get over it!

City Council usually marches in step with Staff, so it's time to back off the scare tactics and ENCOURAGE BUSINESSES to stay in Pleasanton, not drive them out for lack of staff approval.

I think this is a good business / center to have in Pleasanton. I agree the city should be working towards making this happen with the proper planning / reviews / approvals / etc. as opposed to opposing or inhibiting it.

PUSD has a partnership here for our students. We talk about not all students attending a four year college, and here we already have programs for those in the trades.

The City has been asked to work more closely with the District, as it used to do. This is heading in the opposite direction.

Please do not oppose this proposal.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
