Open Space

The preservation of open space in and around the City of San Ramon is a City Council priority. The Open Space Advisory Committee has been charged with:

  • Prioritize land at risk for development based upon the Priority Property List developed by the Open Space Task Force; and

  • Based upon the prioritization of the Priority Property List recommend potential properties for preservation; and

  • Advise the City Council regarding opportunities and resources available for establishing a secure funding source for open space acquisition, permanent preservation, and maintenance for properties contiguous to the City limits; and

  • Provide a forum for input from the community regarding open space issues which are consistent with the Committee's charge; and

  • Seek partnerships with other open space advocacy groups for the purposes of sharing information on funding sources and ways to permanently preserve open space; and

  • Prepare and submit an annual Work Program for approval by the City Council

The Open Space Advisory Committee meets the 2nd Monday of every month.

At the February 2018 meeting the Committee received a presentation on the Bay Area Greenprint tool that provides a myriad of information on open space in the greater Bay Area.  You can find this tool and review information at
