San Ramon council to talk 'mixed-use' definition, zoning administrator

Joint workshop with Planning Commission to precede regular City Council meeting

The definition of mixed-use zoning in San Ramon and potential changes to the city's zoning administrator ordinance are set as the topics of a workshop between the City Council and Planning Commission on Tuesday.

City officials will lead discussions on both issues and ask for the councilmen and commissioners to provide direction to city staff during the special joint meeting, according to assistant city manager Eric Figueroa.

The workshop is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. at San Ramon City Hall, 2222 Camino Ramon. The City Council's regular meeting will follow at 7 p.m.

* The council, during its regular meeting, will consider final approval of a new ordinance to formally prohibit medical marijuana dispensaries in San Ramon.

Council members voted unanimously to give initial support to the ban ordinance two weeks ago.

Tuesday's final vote will occur as part of the council's consent agenda -- a collection of items deemed routine and acted upon all at once.

* The council will hear a presentation from East Bay Regional Park District board member Beverly Lane, who will highlight the board's decision earlier this month to acquire 362 acres of land on the Wiedemann Ranch property for approximately $2 million to connect two popular East Bay parks.

* The councilmen will also receive a report entitled, "California's Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology Program: A Strategy to Reduce Greenhouse Gas and Criteria Emissions."

* They will also consider appointing members to the city's Senior, Housing and Library advisory committees. City Manager Greg Rogers will later provide an update on the new City Hall and San Ramon City Center projects.

* Before the regular meeting, the council will meet at 6:45 p.m. as the governing board of the Successor Agency to the city's former Redevelopment Agency to adopt the agency's recognized obligation payment schedule for Jan. 1 to June 30, 2016.
