PUSD town hall

The Pleasanton Unified School District executive team is holding a public town hall next week at Hart Middle School.

The conversation will focus on next steps for the Measure I bond passed in November and an update on where things stand in the district's elementary boundary adjustment process.

The community meeting will give parents, students and other stakeholders the chance to meet and engage with the Board of Trustees and district cabinet members, including a Q&A session.

The event is scheduled to run from 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday (Jan. 31) in the Hart Middle School multipurpose room at 4433 Willow Road.

'Birding for All'

The Livermore Public Library and Livermore Area Recreation and Park District are partnering on an educational session next weekend to introduce people of all ages to a popular outdoor hobby: birdwatching.

"Learn about the joys of birding with a ranger from (LARPD) before heading outside to look and listen for some local birds," organizers said.

The session is set for 10 a.m. next Saturday (Feb. 4) in Community Rooms A and B at the Civic Center Library, located at 1188 S. Livermore Ave. For more information, call 925-373-5500 or visit

Accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act can also be requested for the event by contacting the city of Livermore's ADA coordinator at 925-960-4170.

Special needs registry

The city of Dublin is creating a new private registry maintained by Dublin Police Services as a channel of support for parents and guardians of residents with special needs.

"Parents or guardians can enroll a person of any age with any medical condition, mental health condition, or disability in the registry," city officials said. "It will provide Dublin police with information regarding any special assistance that person may require during a disaster, evacuation, emergency or interaction with first responders."

The registry will be a private list maintained by the DPS computer-aided dispatch system, according to city officials.

"The information will be accessible only to first responders and will be immediately disseminated to the first responders in the field without having to ask the parents/guardians unnecessary questions during a highly stressful situation," they said. "Register a loved one or yourself at"
