A quick question about Dublin

Original post made by Tin Man, Birdland, on Sep 20, 2010

I have been driving down Dougherty Road in Dublin recently and noticed the neighborhood off Mariposa Drive across from Camp Parks is fenced off and the homes visable are boarded up. I wanted to know what was going on there. Was that a government housing project that was closed down? Is it being developed into something? It really has me curious and my basic Google inquiry returned nothing on it. Does anybody know the story? I know it's Dublin not Pleasanton but some P-Towner has to know what's going on.

I guess it was once Komandorski Village then Arryo Vista. Apparently it is/was owned by HUD or Dublin and it was subsidized housing. It is either being upgraded or was sold to developers and it is going to be leveled and other private market rate housing is going in. That is very poor understanding and obviously answers about nothing.

Interesting. I looked on the around dublin blog site but didn't see anything there about it.

Construction will be by Eden homes and Citation builders

I lived in Komandorski Village and went to Camp Parks Elementary. Some of my best memories are of my time there. Does anyone remember living there around this time? I lived there with my folks... there are 9 children in my family.. we basically had an upstairs and downstairs apt. I believe it might have been low income housing. We always had live music in our yards.. my sister, my cousins and friends not forgotten... I CAN SEE your face but have lost your name! I remember the Oakland Raiders coming to dedicate a park ( I believe it was...something(?) ARNOLD PARK ) We were close to a big hill that us children used to call Devil's Hill or Mountain? I'd love to hear any stories or recollections of others that these things sound familiar to <3

Kormandorski Village was public tax dollars, as was the replacement Arroyo Vista, as is the newer, better, grander development.. We certainly wouldn't want any of the residents to have to live WITHOUT newer and better, the way many of us taxpayers do. AND, believing in personal financial responsibility, I only had one child, thus able to live with whatever we could afford ourselves.
Condoms should be included (required) with all public programs, enabling only short-term assistance and personal resonsibility.
