The Way I See It
A ttending the Pleasanton City Council meeting last Thursday had me nervous with anticipation. And, after almost an hour in executive session so the council could consult with City Attorney Bobby Maldonado, the nerves were still there.
But after agenda item 17 was read by the council’s newest member and former City Manager, Kathy Coronado, and the motion was made and seconded to go with option #2 (partial removal and renovation) for rehabilitation of the buildings for the Community Center/Library project, all the anxiety disappeared. I am also proud to say that the vote was unanimous.
I know I’m not the only person who is relieved and excited that this project will soon be a reality.
Many local people have researched, served on various committees, met with the City Council Members, City Managers and City Staff to help this project move forward. Architects, engineers and consultants have also spent a significant amount of time designing, inspecting and presenting many variations of plans over many years.
There have been fund raisers of all sorts (and more will be scheduled) to take care of what will be needed inside the buildings once the construction is completed. The volunteers who have been involved as well as those who attended and bought plates, auction items and more should all be commended as well. Hats off to the many concerned citizens who worked tirelessly to see this project through. The way I see it, I applaud the whole council for coming together for this and can not wait to walk through the doors of these much needed buildings.
That’s the way I see it, let me know your view – email me at email@example.com, or write at P.O. Drawer 880, Pleasanton, Tx 78064.
