That is indeed a lovely home and I have always admired it. But, who are these folks who decide those "...who preserve and restore existing heritage homes or build new homes that are true to the historic character of Pleasanton's downtown historic district?"

And, what the heck is the "historic character" of downtown? There are so many different types of homes in the downtown area. Historic is old, but does old equal historic?

Any opinions out there?
