What about our slim water supplies? How are we supposed to provide water for all these new residents? All aspects of adding this many people to our population should be examined and evaluated before it's approved.

WATER is the issue along with electricity or are windmills going up?

Is Matt Sullivan going to get involved to stop this Section 8 housing development? After all, he and others made loud screams about Costco because of the projected traffic congestion, vehicle exhaust, and more. Pleasanton is becoming the town of low income housing. It’s losing its charm and significance. Sad.

@Jake Waters I didn't see your name among the 150+ residents of this still charming community who took the time to listen, learn, and participate in the shaping of the framework for this large property which has lost its former glory.
Portraying it only as Section 8 housing is unfair and untrue. It is the first step in what this city has been known for--planned progress. This time, real input from real residents is being sought and welcomed from the very first steps of that planning.
Lost charm? Hogwash. The Pleasanton I live in still has plenty of charm and significance. Negative bantering such as yours certainly doesn't contribute to it but I just hang out with different folks than you do.
Thank goodness there are at least 150 of us who are willing to approach the project with positive ideas and suggestions to help create an even more significant place we call home.

@Jake Waters - what is your concern about housing for lower income residents?

The first two comments repeat the tired trope about water being a problem. It is a problem because nimby's refuse to add any capacity, and then complain there's no water available so we can't build. It's your fault that we haven't added recycling and storage so that there's plenty of water for new development.
