Pleasanton was first settled in the mid-1880's and was incorporated in 1894. It has grown from a small, rural village with an agricultural base to a bedroom community in the mid-1900's to its current status as an expanding regional employment center. During the past two decades, Pleasanton has experienced a diverse pattern of growth including substantial new residential, commercial, office, and industrial development. As a small suburban city, Pleasanton has developed a reputation as a desirable place in which to live and work, with an excellent school system, fine parks and recreational facilities, a traditional downtown area, and a low crime rate.

Pleasanton has historically been a city of predominantly single-family detached homes in traditional subdivisions of three to five units per acre. However, recent trends have decreased the proportion of detached single-family homes, which have declined from 74 percent to 65 percent of the total housing stock since 1985.
