To Tri-Valley With Love
Mobile “Promise Pass” Incentivizes Spending at Nearly 100 Local Businesses
The pandemic may be waning, but local businesses are still teetering. To address this challenge, the East Bay cities of Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, San Ramon and the Town of Danville, have partnered with Visit Tri-Valley (VTV) to launch an unprecedented regional campaign to drive spending in local businesses. Dubbed “To Tri-Valley with Love,” the campaign asks residents and visitors alike to spend at least $25 per week at local businesses instead of online and in big-box stores.

Sweetening the deal, the cities have created a mobile Promise Pass that offers a slew of discounts at nearly 100 businesses, with new offers added regularly. The Promise Pass was created to inspire spending within the Tri-Valley community to help buoy local businesses to see them through the final stages of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Attend a live business day event at the Pleasanton post office. This is a live on-site event for all businesses wanting to save money on shipping cost and learn how to grow your business with USPS every door direct mail.

Pleasanton - We have a water supply issue
Jill Buck, M.S., Ed.
It is time to conserve water
Pleasanton is heavily dependent on Zone 7 Water Agency for our water supply. Under normal circumstances, 20% of our drinking water comes from 3 City-owned wells, and 80% of our water is purchased from Zone 7 Water agency. The amount of water Pleasanton is allowed to draw from our wells is regulated by Zone 7, because they are responsible for managing the Livermore Valley Groundwater Basin into which our City wells are drilled. Currently, one of our City wells is out of service due to high levels of PFAS contamination. More information at: http://bit.ly/pleasantonwater2019

Zone 7 will only receive 5% of its allotment from the State Water Project (SWP) in 2021. While Zone 7 has a diverse portfolio of water supply options, under normal conditions the SWP is the most substantial source of water. Water from the Sierra snowpack is the origin of the SWP, and the snowpack has been very low in 2020 and 2021. In 2020, Zone 7 only received 20% of its allotment from the SWP. Current data predicts that 2022 will be dry, as well. More information at: http://bit.ly/Zone7water2021
