Johnson Drive Economic Development Zone
Scott Raty
The month of August is typically pretty quiet around city hall with minimal commission and council meetings.  That won't be the case this August as the City of Pleasanton will 'daylight' a complete proposal for the Johnson Drive Economic Development Zone (JDEDZ), including projected costs, financing and timing of the related transportation improvements in the area and plans for a Costco to anchor the zone.

While the Chamber has been a vocal advocate for the creation of the JDEDZ, we have withheld final judgement on any proposed projects until we, like everyone else, have had the opportunity to view an actual project proposal and acquired a clear understanding of how the complex construction and financing puzzle pieces will come together.  
We look forward to the City Staff Report and presentations calendared for Tuesday, August 15. Learn more about the Johnson Drive Economic Development Zone here.
