The City of Pleasanton recently sent out letters to certain properties identified as those that would be annexed by the City. The letter was sent as a preliminary matter to start the inquiry into voluntary annexation and the very first step in the process. Upon receipt of those letters the governing body has heard and continues to hear from a number of the people who were sent the letter as well as several citizens of the City with their questions and concerns.

While the City Council has discussed and made provisions for the annexation, the questions the Council have been hearing require a specificity that they are not prepared to give and in some instances are still working on. The letter was not intended to communicate that every part of the planning for the annexation was complete.

 The Governing Body of the City of Pleasanton has heard the questions and concerns of both the citizens of the city and those the annexation would affect. As a result, out of deference and respect to those individuals who have cared enough to participate, it is the intention of the City to pause progress on any annexation until the Council can provide the specifics and details people have asked for. At this time, we have scheduled a Question and Answer session for September 8, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. and a community workshop on October 5, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. at the Pleasanton Community Center at 819 Main Street.
