The San Ramon Planning Commission is set Tuesday to discuss next steps in the city's General Plan update process, following the approval of the Housing Element component of the plan earlier this year.
City staff will provide commissioners an update on the latest steps in the process, including drafts of proposed updates to other critical elements of the plan at the next regular commission meeting this week, specifically revisions proposed in updates to the Growth Management Element and Land Use Element policies, and proposed land use map amendments.
"Due to the timing requirements of State law, the City focused the Update schedule to complete the Housing Element in January 2023 (State certification received in February 2023), and then complete the General Plan Update after HE adoption," senior planner Cindy Yee wrote in a staff report prepared for the upcoming meeting.
The General Plan's Growth Management Element was last updated in 2015, with the proposed updates in the draft aimed at bringing the element into conformance with Measure J, the local transportation tax approved by Contra Costa County voters in 2020, as well as other changes to state housing laws and the projected changes to the city's economic, transportation, and housing landscapes in the coming years.
The Land Use Element was last updated in 2018, with the changes proposed in the draft on the table for commissioners aimed at adapting to the recently approved Housing Element update as well as changes to the vision of the city's future over the past five years.
Staff are asking commissioners to provide feedback on the upcoming presentation of proposed changes ahead of the first public hearing on the proposed General Plan update on May 30.
The San Ramon Planning Commission is set to meet on Tuesday (May 16) at 6 p.m. The agenda is available here.
