Trails damaged

Pleasanton city officials announced Tuesday that Centennial Trail between Main Street and Harvest Circle is off limits due to downed trees and severe trail-bed erosion. There is currently no timetable for when the trail segment will reopen.

At Augustin Bernal Park on the Golden Eagle/Valley View Trail, multiple mudslides have reduced the width of the pathway, but it remains passable for pedestrians, equestrians and cyclists, according to city officials. Cautionary signs are posted at the top and bottom of the trail, and city staff will make repairs there during the spring months.

At the Alamo Canal and Arroyo Mocho trails, multiple mudslides have reduced the width of the path, but it is still passable for pedestrian and cyclists, officials said. Cautionary signs are posted at likely points of entry to these trails, and a schedule for repairs has not yet been set.

PUSD forums

The Pleasanton Unified School District will hold three community forums to solicit input as it searches for a new superintendent.

Two will take place on Wednesday, with the first scheduled from 10:30-11:30 a.m. in the district office boardroom at 4665 Bernal Ave. and the second from 7-8 p.m. in the Amador Valley High library at 1155 Santa Rita Road.

The third forum will be held from 7-8 p.m. Thursday in the district office boardroom.

All forums will be the same, with the intent being to gather feedback on qualities residents would like to see in PUSD's next leader. All community members are welcome.

Music festival

From 5-8 p.m. next Saturday (March 25) Amador Valley High School will host a music festival on its football field, with ticket proceeds going toward a school project.

The artists performing are Amador Valley and Foothill High students, with one band made up of PUSD faculty, according to organizers. Besides the band, attendees will hear a duo, vocalists and a club perform.

Food trucks and student clubs will be on hand selling food. All youth will receive free admission, and adults can buy tickets at the door for $3 each. Proceeds go to the Amador school library renovation.
