San Ramon is a city of intentional planning, which is important to business owners, employers and employees. It assists city leaders in planning for the future by balancing demands, services, investments and infrastructure for the growth and allows a community the ability to focus on long-term economic activity to attract investment.

The City of San Ramon General Plan 2035 articulates a longā€term vision for the City. Plan policies focus on what is achievable in the next 20 years and set forth actions to be undertaken by the City. Broad objectives such as “quality of life” and “community character” are meaningful only if translated into actions that are tangible and can be implemented.

The General Plan is the framework city leaders use to achieve these objectives.

San Ramon Specific Plans

Specific plans set planning policies for a specific, smaller area in a community, as opposed to a City-wide plan such as the General Plan. They say what land uses can occur in the area. They set limits on how much building can go on sites (known as the “intensity” of development) and what structures will look like. Other topics include plans for public facilities to serve the area and how those will be paid for. Specific plans guide zoning rules, subdivisions, public facilities, and future development agreements for a given area.
