San Ramon: Edu Express seeks city permission to increase student capacity

Plus: Planning Commission to review parcel rezoning, residents appeal over 'accessory structures'

Bilingual day school Edu Express in San Ramon is looking to expand its operations and has requested that the city allow them to increase the overall number of students allowed in the building from 25 to 96 kids -- a request the city’s Planning Commission will review during its regular meeting on Tuesday.

As a part of the proposal, Edu Express would continue to host up to 50 students at its tutoring center -- which is located at 2250 Camino Ramon within the Commons Office Park -- on Saturdays and Sundays, and in order to accommodate the increased parking needs in the area, the facility would utilize six vehicles that would transport students from schools and various prearranged off-site locations.

The proposed project would not result in any increase to the size of the 2,952-square-foot building, and according to a city staff report by associate planner Ryan Driscoll, only require limited interior alterations.

The San Ramon Planning Commission will meet to discuss the Edu Express project, among other issues, during its regular meeting Tuesday 7 p.m., at San Ramon City Hall, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road, inside of the council chambers.

* Also on the Planning Commission's docket is a potential decision that would rezone nine parcels located at the intersection of Sunset and Bishop Drives, as "City Center Mixed Use" and "Community Commercial-Height Overlay," in order to make them consistent with the city’s General Plan.

* Commission members will also continue review of an appeal challenging the city zoning director’s interpretation of the term “accessory structure."
