Is there a reason why we "need" so many banks in Pleasanton? It seems that they're taking over all the spaces where tangible goods and services were previously offered. I don't understand how this benefits the local economy-- people don't utilize bank services on a regular basis and Chase already has multiple branches in the area.

I don't understand how this is good city planning.
There are eyesore vacancies right down the street (TGI Fridays building for one) yet our city officials felt it a good idea to to approve this which forces 7 mom and pop businesses that thrive in this location to close or relocate? What gives Pleasanton ? Where is the outrage?
I didn't attend the public hearing - but should we have even needed one? This should have been outright regected and never given the time if day by our planning commission.
