With the economy improving and municipal tax revenues once again growing, Andrade's master plan has a chance of breathing new life into outdoor places and activities Pleasanton enjoys.
Applications are currently being accepted to serve on the Master Plan Steering Committee. The document is intended to be a significant planning tool to help the city plan for the changing scope of recreational activities. As such it will summarize themes, trends and community priorities, assess available resources, review existing and anticipated demographic conditions and provide strategies for parks, recreation programs and open space needs.
To serve on the steering committee and assist with the master planning process, the City Council is seeking two Parents-At-Large representatives from the community who currently have a child or children attending preschool, elementary school, middle school and/or high school. All applicants must be residents here and willing to attend at least one or two meetings per month for a period of six to nine months. Committee members will have to do background reading and research, work collaboratively, and strive for clear communication, a balanced perspective and inclusion of a wide range of viewpoints.
Interested parties should submit completed applications to the City Clerk's office by 4:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 13. The City Council will confirm the members of the committee at its Tuesday, Oct. 2, meeting.
