Planning Commission to discuss San Ramon's housing needs


The San Ramon Planning Commission is set to host a study session to consider the city's housing needs Tuesday evening.

The public discussion comes as a follow-up to vice chair Rick Marks asking staff to schedule a meeting where he and fellow commissioners could talk about "what (they) see as the housing needs of San Ramon based upon our current demographics and properties likely for redevelopment," Debbie Chamberlain, planning division manager, wrote in her pre-meeting staff report.

The commissioners will focus their conversation by reviewing the housing needs assessment component of the city's Housing Element as well as recent American Community Survey five-year estimates for San Ramon's demographics and selected housing characteristics, Chamberlain said. They are not scheduled to take any actions related to the topic.

The housing-needs discussion is the main item listed on the commission's regular meeting agenda, set to get underway at 7 p.m. in the council chamber at San Ramon City Hall, 2222 Camino Ramon.

In other business, the commissioners will hold a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. to conduct interviews and discuss appointments for the Housing Advisory Committee.

Are there any plans for over 55 housing in this area?

Just make sure to think about school capacities when thinking about 'more' houses. OK?
