San Ramon council sets special meeting on old city hall sale

City eyes escrow closure next week on $6.1 million deal for Camino Ramon site

The San Ramon City Council has scheduled a special meeting for Friday afternoon to discuss more documents related to the planned sale of the old city hall site on Camino Ramon.

The city hopes to close escrow as soon as Monday after agreeing last month to sell the parcels with single-story office buildings at 2220, 2222, 2226 and 2228 Camino Ramon for $6.1 million to private investment group OlymBuilder Investment Company, Inc.

The council members reviewed sale-related documents during their regular meeting Tuesday, and they are set to gather again at 4 p.m. Friday to discuss authorizing Mayor Bill Clarkson to execute a grant deed and other documents that may be required to convey title to one of the parcels, according to interim city attorney Bob Saxe.

OlymBuilder Investment Company, Inc. representatives don't plan to comment on the sale until after escrow closes, according to real estate broker Jameel Batshon, of Cornerstone Realtors, who represents the buyer.

Friday afternoon's meeting is set to take place in the council chamber at San Ramon City Hall, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road. The state-of-the-art, two-story building has housed city offices since late-April, when the city moved there from the Camino Ramon site, which had been city hall's home since the mid-1980s.

In other business, the council has canceled its next regular meeting, which was scheduled for Nov. 8, Election Day. The next regular meeting will take place Nov. 22.

Two City Council seats are up for grabs this fall, with incumbents Scott Perkins and Phil O'Loane vying against challengers Sabina Zafar and Susmita Nayak.
