As most already know, the owner of the San Ramon Golf Club has submitted an application to erect a 6-foot high chain link fence around almost all of the golf course. There has been some conversation on Next Door on the topic, although not everyone will be able to view it, depending on their location.
There will be a Public Hearing in the City Council Chamber on Tuesday, April 16 at 7:00 PM. A link to the notice is HERE
When you click on the link, a PDF will be placed in whatever file contains your downloads.
This is the first “official” action concerning the San Ramon Golf Course and the owner’s attempt to build houses and condos on the property. It is very important that everyone makes every possible effort to attend this hearing. Tell your neighbors. The Steering Committee is meeting ahead of the hearing.

Here is part of the conversation on Next Door (thanks to Jeff Hunt for sending us the information):
SAN RAMON PUBLIC GOLF COURSE CITY PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING 4-16-2019
This meeting is being held at 7:00pm on Tuesday, 4/16 in the Council Chamber at 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road. Everyone needs to be there. The wealthy greedy, soulless, corrupt Real Estate marauders, Ronald Richards and Michael Schlesinger, who own the company that now owns the San Ramon Public Golf Course want to close the course so they can sell off the land to Real Estate Developers for tens of millions of dollars who will then put up high density housing. These people know they have no chance of doing this thanks to the vigilance of motivated involved San Ramon residents and organizations like Stay the Course. So, like a petulant child throwing a tantrum because they didn’t get a lollipop these individuals want to throw up a fence around the golf course in a malicious hateful attempt to cause upsetment and irritation to the people that won’t let these little baby boys get their way. It’s time to put our foot down. They want to put a fence adjacent to existing fences in the backyards of homes that border the golf course. They claim it is because their insurance company is requiring this due to crime, vandalism and trespassing. For 2019 San Ramon was the 6th ranked safest city in California, seriously? In addition, the alleged insurance company appears to not care about the dangerous condition this will create for wildlife and children with a substantial gap between the golf courses proposed fence and existing fences. That seems contrary to how I know Insurance companies to operate. In addition there has been no crime reported in this area during the last six months as reported by CrimeReports. The efforts by motivated civic minded San Ramon residents who truly care about the town they live in have been exemplary thus far but sadly not enough. We need ALL the San Ramon residents who care about the town they live in, the town they raise their children in, the town they share with close friends and family to stand up and say ENOUGH. We don’t want these cowardly individuals polluting our community. We don’t need these wealthy individuals coming into OUR CITY, OUR COMMUNITY, OUR HOMES and pushing us around. They don’t care about anyone but themselves and their bank accounts. It’s time for the residents of San Ramon to put their time and effort where their mouth is. You can’t be taken seriously or credibly when you rant about all the problems you may think this country faces if you don’t take just an hour or 2 out of your schedule to attend this meeting and tell the Planning Commission enough is enough and support your community. Just because this particular issue may not directly impact you, it does not pardon your responsibility to your neighbors, your friends, YOUR CITY. Understand, the next time something like this happens it may very well involve you and then you will want everyone else’s support. We must stand together as one unified entity to fight corrupt, wealthy, and malicious organizations or people whenever they try to harm the fabric of our communities. To coin a popular local phrase we have STRENGTH IN NUMBERS. Show up on Tuesday, 4/16, and tell your local elected City Officials to do the right thing and protect the residents of this great City or they will face the wrath of 75,000 motivated involved and caring residents. Deny the application for a fence by Tree City LLC (owned by Ronald Richards and Michael Schlesinger). Thank you for reading
