County Supervisor Andersen set to deliver State of the District address

Tickets on sale now for July 16 luncheon hosted by San Ramon chamber

Contra Costa County District 2 Supervisor Candace Andersen is preparing to meet with residents in Danville on July 16, to review the county’s activities and goals from the past year during her State of the District address.

During the San Ramon Chamber of Commerce-hosted event with lunch served at the Crow Canyon Country Club, Andersen will be speaking on the theme of “how does the county shape and impact your quality of life,” and give the community updates on the important issues that are currently facing the county.

A former Danville Town Council member, Andersen was first elected to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors in 2012 and won re-election in 2016 -- and chamber officials say will run again in 2020. She currently sits on 24 local and regional board addressing planning, land use, mental health economic development and a number of other issues important to life in the county.

Tickets are available now and sponsorship opportunities are available for local businesses and individuals.

The address starts at 11:30 a.m. with a 30-minute registration and networking period, followed by lunch at noon. Chamber officials will give a brief welcoming address at 12:35, and Andersen will then speak for roughly 45-minutes, concluding her address with a brief question and answer segment.

Businesses can still sign up to sponsor the event by contacting the chamber’s Director of Events Kathy Fanning, at 242-0600 via phone or kathy.fanning@sanramon.org for email. Current sponsors include Chevron, the city of San Ramon, City Center / Bishop Ranch / Sunset Development Corporation, San Ramon Regional Medical Center, AT&T, Title Boxing Club of Alamo, Alphagraphics, Fastsigns of San Ramon, Crow Canyon Country Club and Workforce Development Board.

Tickets are $35, include a full meal and can be purchased online or by calling or emailing Fanning,

Andersen will give her State of the District address 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. July 16 at the Crow Canyon Country Club, 711 Silver Lake Drive in Danville.

I would like to know if the County is planning to expand the ULL - Urban Limit Line - next to Tassajara Hills Elementary School for the new, proposed LARGE housing development, with the deceiving name (in my opinion) of “Tassajara Parks”. (It’s NOT a park!) My concern is that this will just be the very beginning of expanding the ULL, all the way to Dublin from unincorporated Danville, and there will be no Agricultural Designated land area, as it all is now (vs. Residential or Commercial Land Use).

I would also like to know where things stand on the proposed MASSIVE URBAN cemetery on Tassajara Rd. (“Creekside Memorial Park Cemetery”, since its developer, Sid Corrie, has passed away. This is no small cemetery we’re talking about. It is supposed to have 100,000, yes 100,000 burial plots, 60,000 square feet of buildings, parking lots, etc., visible from Open Park Preserve areas.

I would also like to know why County Connection buses cannot be provided for residents commuting to Monte Vista High in the mornings for “0” and First Period start times (there’s an afternoon bus to return home), who reside east of Crow Canyon, in incorporated and unincorporated Danville and Blackhawk. I have a petition signed by almost 500 people for these buses, but although County Connection included it as an “Agenda Item” in one of their Board Meetings about a year and a half ago, they said it was too costly and they did not have the $122,000 it would cost. Wouldn’t the cost of paying for the bus counteract some of the expenses? Is there an alternative, as many using Traffix (if they’re lucky enough to purchase a pass) are only using it to get home, as Traffix only picks up in the mornings for First Period start times at Monte Vista, not for “0” Period start times, which about 40% of the kids at MV take.
