Details of application for fence

The owners of the San Ramon Golf Club have applied for a permit to install a fence around the entire property, claiming their insurance carrier requires it.

They submitted their application to the City on October 5, 2018. It was incomplete as of December 3. The City’s Planning Department has created a website to show the status of the application. It will presumably be updated as new information arrives.

    If the City caves on this request, then it’s all over. The course owners should find another insurance company that does not have this requirement. Funny how the course has been run for so many years without any other insurance company requesting a fence.

    The woman that was trespassing and killed by a falling tree on Canyon Lakes Course. And the many people who think walking and playing with their pets on course private property has apparently caused insurance companies to react

    Frank is almost right, I believe the City will cave and it is all over. The course owners are patient and there’s a big pot of GOLD at the end of the golf course rainbow. I’m sadly very pessimistic.
    Unfortunately, the City may have to approve the application since there may be no grounds for denial.
    However, let us continue to fight anyway we can.

    Been doing construction for a bit now, including projects like Callippe GC, and know insurance companies are very careful not to mandate a developer/contractor’s means and methods. Safeguarding the public (with isolated construction safety fencing) may be required to mitigate risk, but only if and where construction is being done. The vast majority of the golf course perimeter is already ‘fenced’ with wrought iron, and chain link along the trail. Last time construction fencing was erected, the installation introduced sight line issues at a number of locations, which I trust the developer’s insurance carrier would not have approved of. And, what construction is nearly underway? If not temporary (for construction), the Planning and Building Codes require ‘permanent ‘ fencing.
