Plans for developing a 400-acre site on Pleasanton's east side along Stanley Boulevard with high density housing and more commercial and office buildings are making progress. The East Pleasanton Specific Plan task force, which has been meeting since last August, is about halfway through its assignment to determine the best uses for a 1,000-acre site that includes 600 acres of lakes controlled by Zone 7.
