Is it possible to widen the exit to Fallon Road to two lanes, one going left and the other going right to the outlets. Right now, there is only one lane to exit before it widens to both sides. So if you don’t plan to exit to the outlets, you are stuck waiting for other cars in front of you who are going to the outlets. We live on Signal Hill Drive and that is our exit going home. This issue should have been avoided by people who are making decisions on traffic control! Common sense has it that a bottleneck exit on this road will become a problem to those who live in Dublin using this exit competing with shoppers at the outlet and are not residents of the area. We pay taxes here and deserve a better shake.

This paragraph made me spit out my coffee:
"The specifics of the AT Dublin plan, including adding more than 400 additional units, troubled Haubert -- as did the lack of public input. Although the council approved a study on changing the project more than two years ago, there has not been much public engagement around the plan."
First, Mayor Haubert has never been troubled by residential development. He receives big money from developers and has consistently voted for ill-advised high density residential projects, including the rezoning of commercial parcels to residential. A whole lot of people noticed in the recent election that the owners of undeveloped land only allowed one candidate's campaign signs on their property: Mayor Haubert, of course. It is politically wise for Haubert to *appear* to be against development, but look at how he votes and who funds his campaigns.
Second, Dublin residents have never been so engaged -- mostly around the issue of out-of-control residential development, at the expense of quality of life. Our elected officials have not been listening. They put important votes at the end of meetings, waiting out the residents who have showed up to give input; they have cut off speakers who oppose these residential projects. They are actually putting energy into suppressing the voice and the will of the vast majority of Dubliners. It's disappointing that Pleasanton Weekly will amplify Mayor Haubert's false narrative without checking the facts.

Typical politician.

"I opposed it". After built and campaign chest lined. Accurate statement for future campaign marketing, but not effective or meaningful in context.

Also what Livermore outlets are mentioned? Im only aware of san Francisco outlets in Livermore.

Pleasanton Parent: Seriously? Tri-valley locals call it "the Livermore outlets." I've never heard anyone around here refer to it as "San Francisco Outlets." Having "SF" in the name is merely a ploy to get SF vacationers to hop on a bus to bring them to the famed "San Francisco Outlets of Livermore." Total joke.

I agree. Was meant to be extremely sarcastic.

Everyone talks about IKEA and traffic but I have not heard anyone
