Neighbors on the west side of Pleasanton need to weigh in on the Stoneridge Mall redevelopment planning framework. Redevelopment of the mall with additional retail, commercial, office, and up to 1440 units of high-density housing units as envisioned by developers and the city will create significant impacts on the neighborhoods surrounding the project. We are already burdened with the soon-to-be Costco and the traffic, air quality, and public health impacts (which the City council has ignored with its approval), and now this. There are rumors that one of the developers wants to fast-track a Target for the site now. Please contact the Council with your concerns and advocate that a comprehensive plan should be developed by emailing them at [email protected] or attending the meeting tonight either in person or by Zoom. Here is the info on how to attend: Web Link

I would also encourage you to contact the two City Council candidates qualified for the new District 1 (northwest Pleasanton) election in November. They are Dean Wallace ([email protected]) and Jeff Nibert ([email protected]). Ask for their position on this and express your views.

Candidates are not eligible to vote til they are council members. They can have an opinion, which they’ll probably not share with the public, for that same reason.
There’s no one prohibiting them from commenting right here.

dknute,

These individuals are running for City Council in District 1, where this project will be built. As a resident of District 1, it is legitimate for me to ask about their position on this and to try to influence their views. Since staff says the framework will be a 6-month process one of them will be in office when the outcome is voted on. So yes, they should be providing their thoughts on this project so we can decide whether or not to vote for them.

ps - I sent an email to both of them and neither has replied yet.

Matt Sullivan,

High density housing development at Stoneridge near public transport is exactly what Pleasanton needs and exactly what the environment needs. It would be counterproductive to oppose this.

Also a Target store with groceries would be another improvement that would help keep cars off the streets allowing people to walk to shopping.
