My sons and their friends have used the basketball courts numerous times and when I read the city was going to move them to accommodate a new city center I couldn't believe it, especially when there is all that land on the corner of Camino Ramon (and do we really need a city center for the council members?). Kids need a place to go with their friends that is fun and doesn't cost money. I hope the city finds a new location that is just as good, if not better, than the existing courts.

Oh, great. Now take space that is needed and should be used for MORE TENNIS COURTS and use it for basketball courts.

I suggest to build more tennis courts supply unmet past needs and new needs from added population.
San Ramon isn't really meeting its citizen's recreation needs and desires!
San Ramon's tennis players are having to travel elsewhere for more courts and more tennis......and just don't have time or inclination to be "squeaky wheel" types.

More PARKING is needed in the area as well. (Ever tried to attend the Summer Concerts or Fairs.)
Plan and build the parking FIRST!

LAST PRIORITY should be another City Hall for the politicians and LT city employees (including Planners)! (But that won't be the way it will be.)

Pretty small portion of the population plays tennis -- or basketball. When do the rest of us get some services from our Town?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
