Any Feedback on Wellis Ranch, Dublin?

Hi, Considering buying a home at Wellis Ranch Dublin. Anyone have any feedback about that community?
How is the commute to the elementary school given its 3.3 miles away?
proximity to Indian store, and other stores etc?   How is the community overall?
Are there a lot of Indian families with elementary/middle school aged kids ( like 2-3rd grades) ?
Is there domestic help available in that area?
Do they have any community events?
Looking for any positive or negative feedback I can get. Thank you in advance.

Dublin: Middle and High Schools

Neighbors, We are thinking of moving to Dublin but have been scared by reading overflows in middle and high schools. I understand that there is only one high and it is way beyond the capacity. I know they are using portable class rooms by adding more classes but wondering if it is having negative impact on securing AP placements and electives.  The property that we are looking has Wells Middle as the home school whose rating seem to have plummeted from 9 to six!
Interested to learn experiences of parents who have middle and high school going kids.
Thanking you all in advance

Dublin: More Housing, No; Pedestrian Friendly Retail, Yes

Dublin City is entertaining a proposal to construct more blocks of dense housing on the eastern side on Tassajara Road, opposite Emerald Glen Park, just north of Dublin Blvd. So far this land is supposed to be for pedestrian-friendly retail and restaurants.
It would simply be good and desirable by all Dublin residents if the land is left alone to be used for retail as originally planned. Dublin, after all, has a lot of big-box retail and now an enormous amount of housing for its size. Modern pedestrian-friendly retail would be an awesome, welcome addition. (Another story for another day – if the parcel can be used for the new High School).  To understand what’s going on – the pink color below is the originally planned retail-oriented area:

Existing Land Use - AT Dubin
Existing Land Use

And see, below, the pink area replaced with housing.  So the new proposed plan is to instead construct more dense housing. Really? ?(And amongst other issues, where would kids from this new development go to school? – there is some serious thinking required here on part of the City Council and the School District).

Proposed Land Use - AT Dublin
Proposed Land Use

A large retail area, walkable from across the Emerald Glen Park, Waterford, Sorrento, The Villas would be pretty cool – it’s a need, it’s a desire, both for the city’s residents, and its image.
Pictures above, worth a thousand words, are telling a different story that is evolving instead.
Granted a relatively much smaller retail is still part of the proposed plan – with two Hotels and a small Cinema. But it’s unacceptably small.  There is a large well-earning population around that can help the retail sustain and flourish. There is no reason to dilute or change the existing Land Use Plan. And every reason for Dublin residents to oppose this planThere is a petition to make the voice heard, that can be signed here.  The Dublin city staff report on the item is available at on the city website (source of the pictures above).

Any place desi parents (visiting from india) meet up/walk in evenings?

Hello, I live in pleasanton and have parents visiting from India;  but they are bored in the evenings. Is there a place desi parents (visiting from India) meet up/walk  in evenings? Similar to lake Elizabeth area in Fremont?

Preferably closer to pleasanton/dublin (as opposed to Windermere) – that is too far from where I live.
