Challenge to the Mayor

Original post made by Bill, Amberwood/Wood Meadows, on Jul 21, 2014

Where viewscapes are negatively impacted by a proposed structure, cities often employ two ladder fire trucks to act as an anchor for a rope to be strung at a height and for a length that is the ridgeline of the structure’s roof. This allows citizens to see the visual impact of a high rise structure. I challenge the mayor to let the fire department deploy two ladder trucks at the Summerhill property, next to the Arroyo Mocho Creek so that the residents of Parkside and interested Pleasanton citizens can see what the visual impact will be to the Parkside neighborhood. If the maneuvering space is too small for the fire trucks then a couple of cherry pickers from the operations department will do if they can reach the height of this proposed four story building.

Instead of posting your challenge here, send an email directly to the city planner(s) in charge of the project. Or better yet, stop in at city hall and pay them a visit. I have done this myself a number of times over the last 30 years as a Pleasanton resident and have had very positive encounters with staff on various concerns.

The mayor is not the person in charge of development project review and approval, nor are the individuals who read these posts.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
