San Ramon residents will once again have the opportunity to eat pancakes, drink coffee and talk about the pressing issues facing their community with Mayor Bill Clarkson on Friday, when the monthly Mayor’s Breakfast series returns.
Held on the last Friday of each month at Clementine’s Restaurant, for January’s breakfast Clarkson will be accompanied by San Ramon parks and community services director Kathi Heimann, who will review the city’s efforts to expand the public’s enjoyment of San Ramon’s natural resources.
“Kathi will provide an update on the city's work to develop a new Parks, Trails, Open Space and and Recreation Master Plan. The master plan will be used to help guide the city in how it will meet the recreational needs of San Ramon residents over the next decade,” Clarkson said in an email to residents. “San Ramon's parks and open spaces are just one of the reasons San Ramon is such a great place to live and I think Friday's update and discussion will be informative for all.”
An ongoing process, residents are invited to learn more about the Parks, Trails, Open Space and Recreation Master Plan online at www.sanramon.ca.gov.
