The Contra Costa Times reports that the City of Pleasanton recently completed a rezoning to allow more housing in Hacienda Business Park.
After nearly a year of work, the Pleasanton City Council unanimously approved development guidelines for rezoning three areas in the city’s largest business park. The council, in complying with a court settlement, voted 5-0 for transit-oriented development standards and design guidelines for three plots in the Hacienda Business Park on the city’s northern edge, near Interstate 580 between Hopyard Road and Hacienda Drive.
The approved guidelines include designs for streets, pedestrian walkways and open spaces, as well as for buildings between three and five stories, which would include apartments and possible retail uses. The guidelines will guide development of about 31 acres in the business park that were rezoned by the council in October 2009.
