Two members needed for planning group
Two spots are open for at-large members of the East Pleasanton Specific Plan Task Force. Members will guide planning for a 1,000-acre area in east Pleasanton, the former site of sand and gravel mining. Members will propose new uses and a circulation system for the site and recommend plans for financing and building the necessary infrastructure.
Applicants must be city residents. Volunteers will attend a minimum of one or two meetings a month for a year or more. The city is looking for members who are clear communicators who can do background reading and research, work collaboratively and who are open to a wide range of viewpoints.
Applications are available at the city clerk's office, 123 Main St., or can be downloaded at http://www.ci.pleasanton.ca.us/pdf/epspcomm.pdf. They must be received by the clerk's office by 4:30 p.m. Friday. For more information, call 925-931-5027.
