As you may know, the City of Pleasanton is in the process of accepting public comments on a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (DSEIR) for the Johnson Drive Economic Development Zone (JDEDZ). The JDEZ is a pilot Economic Development Zone within a 40-acre area along Johnson Drive between Stoneridge Drive and I-580 currently developed with office, commercial, institutional, and industrial uses. The JDEDZ would allow the City to use zoning and land use designations, incentive programs, completed environmental review documentation, and standards and guidelines to streamline the development process and encourage investment, adding value to properties within the JDEDZ. The DESIR includes some assumptions about development that would take place within the JDEDZ in the short term ("Phase I," which includes the development of club retail, general retail, and hotel uses) and the long term ("Full Buildout," which includes Phase I as well as additional retail, commercial, and industrial/office uses). The JDEDZ is a part of the 2009 General Plan’s program for business retention and expansion.
A public hearing at the City of Pleasanton Planning Commission was held on September 23, 2015 to solicit public comments on the DSEIR. To maximize public outreach from the neighborhoods in the immediate vicinity of the JDEZ, a Neighborhood Meeting will be held to receive further public comments on the DSEIR. The comments provided at this Neighborhood Meeting will be addressed in the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (FSEIR). Subsequent Planning Commission and City Council Meetings will be noticed and held at a later date, where comments may also be provided. No action will be taken on the DSEIR or JDEDZ at this Neighborhood Meeting. Please come and share your comments regarding the DSEIR.
The DSEIR is available on the City’s website at www.cityofpleasantonca.gov/JDEDZSEIRSept2015.
