Pleasanton

History:

Pleasanton, the jewel of the Amador Valley, is located in the eastern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area. Our geographic location has been

one of the major factors in shaping our past and will continue to shape our future.

After being chosen as the background for the movie, “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm”, starring Mary Pickford, Pleasanton served as the location for many films because of its historic downtown and rural environs, eventually becoming known as the “Hollywood of the North”.

Pleasanton’s rural character was maintained through the late 1950′s while other cities in the Bay Area grew rapidly, often routinely bulldozing blocks of historic buildings in the name of “progress.” It was only a matter of time until developers made their move on Pleasanton and the 1960s and ’70s brought drastic increases in both our boundaries and population. Located at the intersection of I-580/I680, Pleasanton became a magnet for retail/commercial developers. Several business parks were constructed including Hacienda, which is the largest in northern California. Jobs multiplied rapidly. By the mid 80s, Pleasanton was the third fastest growing city in California based on economic indicators.

Revenues from our commercial and retail centers have helped the City fund many of the essential recreational and cultural services that set Pleasanton apart from other towns of like size in the Bay Area. Pleasanton, “the City of Planned Progress”, manages to preserve our “turn of the century” flavor while promoting the growth and progress necessary for the economic health of the citizens. Pleasanton city now has the largest active sports park in northern California, a public swimming complex with four pools, a regional park with facilities for boating, fishing and swimming, a City-owned theater for live performances, state-of-the-art basketball facilities built by the joint efforts of the City and School District at all middle schools, vast open space parks connected throughout with miles of trail for horseback riding, walking, or bicycling . . . and even a skateboard park.

Pleasanton remains a welcoming family town and continues to emerge as a major job center with many corporate businesses moving their Downtown-Pleasantonheadquarters here. Over 5,460 businesses and industries employing over 50,000 people are presently located in Pleasanton. Residents population now exceeds 67,724 and is still growing. And as Pleasanton grows, its population is diversifying. Currently there are many cultural and recreational programs for all ages and cultures. Local churches have implemented programs to celebrate ethnic and cultural diversity. The schools have taken the lead in offering many new ethnic and cultural classes along with other progressive programs which have resulted in the State of California naming both of our comprehensive high schools, all three of our middle schools, and seven out of our nine elementary schools to the elite list of “California Distinguished Schools”. Several Pleasanton schools have also been named as National Blue Ribbon Schools, and one school was named a National School of Character, one of only 10 in the nation.

Pleasanton is truly a community that cares. When a need arises, regardless of size, whether it is a child with a critical disease, a non-profit needing enlarged facilities, a city service that needs expanding, or an issue about community growth, citizens from all walks of life unite to identify and implement positive solutions. The degree of success in accomplishing community goals has been exceptional and continues to enhance the quality of life in this sparkling jewel called Pleasanton.
