Planning Commission to review fencing project around San Ramon Golf Club

Owner wants to install new fencing throughout property for security reasons

Fencing along the San Ramon Golf Course property will be the main topic of conversation at the San Ramon Planning Commission meeting on Tuesday evening, with commissioners reviewing an application requesting perimeter fencing throughout the property.

Winding among a neighborhood in southern San Ramon, the golf club is privately owned -- but open to the public for play -- with many holes running alongside residential backyards or near city streets and other public rights-of-way.

The club owner has requested they be allowed to install a six foot high black vinyl-coated chain link fence abutting residential areas bordering the property, and a four foot high black, wrought iron fence against city-owned property on the public right-of-way. The residential abutting fencing would remove some gate access that has been installed by property owners to enter the golf course.

According to a staff report by city senior planner Cindy Yee, the applicants have put in the request in order to increase security and reduce “high-risk hazards such as trespassing, vandalism, injury to neighbors and to deter crime.”

After initial discussion this Tuesday night, the Planning Commission staff expect to review the plan further at its regular meeting on May 7.

The commission will hold its regular meeting Tuesday 7 p.m., at San Ramon City Hall, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road, inside of the Council Chambers.

The Planning Commission will also further review the city’s ordinance regulating the installation of small cell wireless facilities in San Ramon, in order to make sure the city’s policy falls in line with Federal Communications Commission regulations.

If approved Planning Commission staff will recommend the City Council approve the ordinance at the council’s April 23 regular meeting.

A consent agenda item, the recommendation will be approved without further discussion unless requested by a resident or member of the Planning Commission.
