why doesn't the school board sell the lot they own on vineyard avenue to a developer for an apartment complex so the ruby hill area can also be impacted by the low income high density situation that is coming to town

Ruby Hill bashing is tired and overplayed. The Ruby Hill comment is class warfare with no substance. Envy is ugly when it gets malicious. RH pays a large percentage of Pleasanton property taxes.

Parkside will be impacted by the new housing mandates, one way or another. Most of the rezoned sites are within 2 miles of this neighborhood! Name one other place in this city that is going to have so many new high density apts and low income housing that close.
Whats wrong with the big site over by BART...that doesn't back up to anyone residence.
Why isn't the city sharing the impact of all this new mandated building with other neighborhoods?

Pretty sure the site across the street was zoned for housing, not to mention the parcel by Kaiser and the Bart parking lot.

I think you are right ???, but which sites are they actually going to build on. I know the one on W. Los Positas is far into the planning stages. I've seen the developers renderings. The other sites I don't think there is anything in the works for.

Pretty sure a project has already been approved for the land across from Bart and for the parcel behind Kaiser. Pretty sure a large project has already been approved on the east side as well.

Just curious but are you aware that an office building up to 60 feet tall can be in the business park? That would include anyway along West Las Positas. That has been in effect for over 20 years.
