City Council Meeting about Development Density

Two of our community members have passed on some information that is extremely important.

The San Ramon City Council and Planning Commission are meeting tonight in a joint “workshop” session to talk about the possibility of allowing denser development in some areas of the city in exchange for more developer concessions.

From Sam Richards’ East Bay Times article:

At a joint City Council/Planning Commission workshop Tuesday night, the pros and cons of allowing denser development in certain parts of the city, and whether developer concessions the city could receive in exchange would be worth the price of dealing with more traffic and congestion, are on the agenda.

Read the entire article HERE.

There is more detail on the City of San Ramon website.

The meeting will be in the City Council chamber in City Hall, at 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road.

This would be a good meeting for as many of us as possible to attend.

    I am surprised no one has commented on this and I am even more surprised at what is happening to San Ramon.

    Why is the city even considering this? Why are they even discussing it? Enough is enough already.

    No offense but do we want San Ramon to turn into the next Dublin?

    Under the leadership of Mayor Bill Clarkson, Vice Mayor David E. Hudson, Scott Perkins, Philip G. O’Loane, Harry Sachs it looks like San Ramon will become the next Dublin.

    I lived in a city that was ruined by real estate developers and the politicians that were in their back pocket. I left.

    As I said, I can not believe we are even discussing more denser development projects in $an Ramon. Looks like after 12 years I might be leaving again. Soon.

      It would be worth reading the explanation on the link to the City website. Attending the meeting would be a good idea, as well. We’ll try to get some kind of report published as soon after the meeting as possible.

        Thanks, Joe. I did read it. I’ve seen it all before. It’s sad. San Ramon is such a great community. More development is not going to make it greater. I don’t know what these politicians are thinking.

        I will look forward to your report. Thank you.

    Time to vote all the current San Ramon leadership out of office. They’ve been bought out and sold us out.

      I agree Pete. What we really need on the City Council is some young, stay-at-home Moms who moved to San Ramon because they thought it is a great place to raise a family.

      I do not want to be cynical but a City Council made up of a bunch of middle aged and older white men? Do they represent the community or are they in it for something else?

      Enough with the development already. They do not get that? Makes me think they are in it for something else.
