This started as a campaign by a local transportation company located near the proposed Costco location together with the owners of local gas stations. I don’t know who is behind this latest attempt, but I would like to know so I can stop being a customer. They are costing the taxpayers millions to defend a consistently losing effort, and they should stop.

What is with this new way of life - if someone doesn’t like something or if it doesn’t benefit them personally - they take out a lawsuit! We voted on this people. Just like we voted on a Costco. The majority wants both! This new way of life seems so self centered. If it’s not good for me then it’s not going to be good for anybody. It’s toddler behavior and as adults we should be past that. The majority has spoken whether you agree or disagree. I’m not involved in any way with either project so I can honestly say I’m objective. This new lawsuit business is like taking your marbles and going home because you lost. Except that it is a costly action on everyone’s part. In the end, I think those who take out random frivolous lawsuits should pay for the expenses on both sides. Maybe that would cause people to really think about their actions. Just my opinion.

Steve -- you are confusing Pleasanton with Livermore. This small Inn is proposed for Livermore. The "not in my backyard" folks there filed the lawsuit.

Seems perfect to me on Arroyo Road. Don’t we want to promote wineries and wine tourism? That size of boutique hotel and small restaurant are in keeping with the vineyards. What’s the hub bub? I’m tired of these people constantly filing lawsuits if they don’t get exactly what they want and trump up environmental reasons.

Dear Move to Livermore, we can only dream of that but I wouldn’t want to wish MATT on any place. Berkeley or out of State is the only hope for Pleasanton and the Tri Valley.

That part of town really has nothing out there but million dollar homes. Google it yourself.

I would think they would want that out there. It's only going to increase the property values and now is not the time to bicker about the small things.

If this is not good for me, then it will not be good for anyone. This is the behavior of the little ones, and as adults, we have to get past this. Most said whether you agree or disagree. I am in no way involved in any of the projects, so I can honestly say that I am objective.

I live in the neighborhood and welcome the project, as do many others. It is as envisioned when the plan was established, including the residential community that is complaining. We residents have gotten our piece of the plan, it is now time for the rest of the plan to be built. The wine industry needs this inn, and I welcome something so lovely in our neighborhood. The owner has done a great job of design with the neighborhoods in mind and will live on site and be part of the community. She has listened and responded positively to the neighbors. I agree with others on this string and hope the cost in money and time of these frivolous lawsuits do not detour the owners.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
