General Plan Update Community Workshop & Community Survey

Plan San Ramon

In summer 2021, the City of San Ramon kicked off updates to the General Plan, Housing Element, and Climate Action Plan. These three guiding documents serve as the City’s long-term plan for land use, housing, and climate policies, and are scheduled to take two years to complete.

On Thursday, September 9, 2021, the City of San Ramon hosted a virtual Community Engagement Workshop on the update to the General Plan, Housing Element, and Climate Action Plan. An introduction to the project was provided, and community input was invited. A full recording of the workshop is now available to watch on YouTube.

Residents are also invited to complete a Community Survey on how you envision San Ramon evolving over the next two decades. The survey contains 30 short questions, should take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete, and is available online until Sunday, October 31.

If you have any questions regarding this project or the public workshop, please contact Cindy Yee, Senior Planner at (925) 973-2560.
