With Pleasanton ranking among the top 100 cities in the U.S. and Dublin a finalist for the 2010 All-America City Awards, we’re pleased to offer Info 2010-11, a resource guide filled with information about these bountiful communities. Despite a sluggish economy over the last two years, both cities have forged ahead with capital improvements, business and industrial investments and retail sectors that once again are seeing increased sales and profitability. In Pleasanton, the city’s new $10 million downtown Firehouse Arts Center has had sold-out performances and filled art galleries since opening day Sept. 17. Multi-million-dollar projects expected to start in 2011 include a large-scale Lifestyle Safeway supermarket and adjoining retail complex adjacent to Bernal Avenue and the I-680 freeway, and an 800-unit retirement and independent care complex called Stoneridge Creek and a new auto mall, both on the 124-acre Staples Ranch that will be annexed into Pleasanton in early 2011. In Dublin, Grafton Station with its large retail segments will continue opening in phases in 2011 along with new homes such as those already under construction in the Sorrento community to the east and Shaffer Ranch to the west. Whole Foods also is expected to open a 50,000-square-foot store just west of the Hacienda Crossings retail center. Transportation also is getting better, with a new express toll road just opened in the southbound lanes of I-680 and more coming on both the northbound side and I-580. The new Dublin-Pleasanton West BART station will open this spring and funds have been appropriated to widen Highway 84 from the new Isabel Road interchange at I-580 across Pigeon Pass to its merge with I-680. Look for extensions of both Dublin Boulevard east to the city limits and Stoneridge Drive to El Charro Road to get under way in late 2011. Whether you’re new in our communities or seasoned dwellers, you’ll find the coming months exciting and this new Info 2010-11 a ready reference guide to help you enjoy all the amenities we have to offer.

When it comes to your heart, results speak louder than words. And in the eyes of the authorities that statistically measure outcomes, the heart program at San Ramon Regional Medical Center is among the best, not only in the East Bay, but in all of California. See the outcome studies for yourself at www.oshpd.state.ca.us. Perhaps most convincing of all are some of your neighbors…who haven’t missed a beat.
