San Ramon commission to review General Plan annual report

Planners also to discuss five-year capital improvement program

The San Ramon Planning Commission on Tuesday is set to talk about an annual report that analyzes the city government's efforts to implement San Ramon's General Plan over the past year.

The 115-page document tracks the status of policies and objectives for all city departments listed throughout the 2035 General Plan, which was adopted two years ago. The report also includes a work plan schedule for accomplishing those goals going forward.

City and state law require a General Plan implementation annual report to be submitted to the Governor's Office of Planning and Research and the Department of Housing and Community Development, according to city associate planner Cindy Yee.

"City staff has been actively implementing policies of the General Plan since its adoption in May of 2015," Yee wrote in her staff report to the commission.

"The annual report and work plan is structured to identify the city's past, current and future General Plan implementation strategies and thus serves as the work-plan document for city staff in the ongoing implementation of the General Plan," she added.

City staff asks the Planning Commission to review and provide comment on the annual report before forwarding it to the City Council for final approval, after which it would be sent to the state agencies, Yee said.

In other business, commissioners will review the city's draft capital improvement program for 2017-18 to 2021-22 to make sure it conforms with the General Plan.

Among eight new projects added to the five-year program are repaving Alcosta Boulevard from Montevideo Drive to Fircrest Lane, Bollinger Canyon Road frontage improvements, cricket pitch installation, landslide repairs, the Parks and Community Services Master Plan, and sidewalk repairs.

The commission meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Tuesday inside the council chambers at San Ramon City Hall, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road.
