I've read Jeb Bing's March 22 editorial "Downtown Planning: Are developers now making the decisions?" Mr. Bing may be onto something.

The people elect five councilmembers to manage the city's services and development. During their electioneering, most, if not all, vowed to maintain the charm of downtown. I trust that they will adhere to their pledge. Pleasanton is a destination for folks all around the Bay. They come for shopping, the restaurants and the charm. Why would the council allow this charm to disappear? Ground-level residential units on Main Street? Four story apartment buildings? How about more traffic and less parking? When this gets to the planning commission, I would urge them to stop this foolishness right now and the same goes for the council. We must not allow developers to run the city.
