As a former San Ramon Planning Commissioner I share Chair Kuznik's concerns about seemingly having little ability to make critical decisions on housing numbers. I have long disagreed with the RHNA concept and process.

While you can't realistically control numbers, you can control the quality of the housing and compatibility of the development with the surrounding area. I hope the depiction of the development shown here is conceptual. My hope would be the commission. ARB and council would put their heads together and make this development look a lot better than the cookie cutter approach that has been shown here.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
