Our next meeting has been scheduled:
September 22, 2016
Wedgewood Banquet Center
9430 Fircrest Lane, San Ramon
At our last meeting, there was interest expressed in having the San Ramon City Attorney address our group. Bob Saxe, City Attorney, will be at our meeting and will answer questions related to the golf course. I know there are many questions so in order for Bob to be prepared and to keep our meeting timely please submit questions beforehand. Please email your questions to Joe Parsons at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 12.
The following were nominated to represent our group:
I have asked each to provide a statement including their background and their goals to achieve in representing our cause. I will provide these statements so you can vote for those you feel will represent our group best. We will vote by a show of hands per nominee, all nominees may be voted in and there is no cap on representatives.
This week many of you may have seen a drawing of potential development on the golf course. The bottom line is the drawing is nothing more than a piece of paper. I am including a copy of the drawing and you will notice it does not include any markings or language as to who created it. The drawing calls for 255 townhomes and two apartment buildings covering holes 1, 2, 9, 18 and the driving range. It is outrageous and will never happen but this is a start towards a productive dialogue. Up until now everything has been speculation but now we have something to work with. As it stands now I do not believe anything other than the course closing, being bordered by chain link fencing and left do deteriorate as has been the case with the other golf courses purchased by the owners. The only way I can see to prevent this is if we can support a negotiated alternative plan submitted to the city. Please keep in mind no drawing has been submitted to the City.
I know many are concerned, myself included, at the absurdity of the drawing. As I indicated above it is a piece of paper. I want to win Power Ball but I am not holding my breath. I wish we could go back in time to November 2015 but we can’t so let’s do everything we can to make the most out of a bad situation.
Stay the Course,
