Johnson Drive Economic Development Zone (EDZ)

In 2014, the City Council directed staff to explore the potential for a pilot project along Johnson Drive. The Johnson Drive Economic Development Zone (EDZ) is a proposal to spur investment in approximately 40 acres of mostly under-utilized or vacant land situated along Johnson Drive near Stoneridge Drive and I-680.

The Pleasanton City Council voted on July 19, 2016 on a citizen backed initiative designed to prohibit retail uses of 50,000 square feet or greater within the Johnson Drive Economic Development Zone (EDZ). The Council voted to place the "Citizens for Planned Growth in the Johnson Drive Economic Development Zone" initiative on the November 2016 ballot.
