Preserving Pleasanton's Planned Progress
We need your help to STOP MASSIVE SPRAWL in Pleasanton - The BIGGEST Residential Development EVER in Pleasanton
Attend one of these City sponsored meetings:
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE PROPOSED EAST PLEASANTON SPECIFIC PLAN (EPSP)
1. The base/preferred plan is for 1300 new houses; 1.6 million sq. ft. of industrial/retail space
2. Creates a 4-lane extension of El Charro Road from Stoneridge Rd.at HWY 580 to Stanley Blvd.
3. Includes expansion of 112 acres outside of the voter-approved Urban Growth Boundary (UGB)
4. Plans include some homes and a school, within the Livermore Airport Protection Area!
5. Encroaches on Zone 7 land critical for drinking water storage and flood control. Just say NO.
HERE'S HOW THE PROPOSED EPSP WILL IMPACT OUR CITY:
SCHOOLS: - 1300 NEW students (per PUSD Demographer’s report April 2015)
- Developers may offer a K-5 school
- No capital money for our cash-strapped middle schools or high schools
TRAFFIC: - Will create a traffic nightmare with 29,000+ new car trips per day on Pleasanton Streets
- Encourages cut-through traffic from southbound drivers on 580, Dublin and San Ramon - 1300 new homes will create traffic logjams on First St, Valley, Bernal and more.
WATER: - Pleasanton taxpayers are spending $19 million for recycled water/purple pipe systems so - YOU can have more drinking water, not 1300 new homes.
- This is not the time to add to our limited water supply problems.
HEALTH: - Our valley is “non-attainment” for national and state ozone levels, and small particulate standards.
- Located near noisy and dirty industrial gravel mining companies, in use until 2040+.
THE EPSP IS POOR PLANNING FOR PLEASANTON BECAUSE IT:
- Isn’t required by state or regionally imposed housing unit requirements (RHNA)
- Ignores our voter-approved Urban Growth Boundary (Measure FF in 1996)
- Creates unsightly SPRAWL
- Violates the intent of our General Plan to provide a buffer between Cities
