The Pleasanton City Council will consider on May 19, 2015, slowing or stopping work on the East Pleasanton Specific Plan, an 1,100-acre swath of primarily former quarry lands where a 19-member citizen task force is envisioning 1,300 homes, 1.6 million square feet of business and commercial and 759 acres of open space. Councilmember Jerry Pentin requested the vote, citing concerns about water, schools, traffic and state housing mandates. BIA East Bay Governmental Affairs Executive Director Lisa Vorderbrueggen will advocate in favor of continuing the planning work and encourages association members to attend, as well. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the City Council’s chamber at 200 Old Bernal Ave., in Pleasanton. Click here
