General San Ramon Mayor Updates
North Camino Ramon Specific Plan
The North Camino Ramon Specific Plan is a long term plan that sets in place a multiple year (possibly decades) view of approximately 295 acres. There were two significant changes to the plan that were requested and included prior to its adoption. The approval of the modified plan was well received with positive feedback from both residents and businesses. Please click here for information on the NCRSP.
Norris Canyon - High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV)
Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) in conjunction with Caltrans is in the very early phases of studying traffic improvement options along the I680 corridor. One idea that is being considered is to build a HOV off-ramp from I680 at the Norris Canyon overpass.
City Center Project
One of the most oft asked question I receive is "What is going on with the City Center project?" The City has formed a City Center Task Force to better understand issues facing the long awaited City Center and provide a status update to the City Council. The Task Force will be presenting their findings to the public thru the City Council at the September 11th Council meeting.
Iron Horse Trail
The City of San Ramon and Sunset Development Company are working together to develop plans to beautify the Iron Horse Trail within the City of San Ramon. The beautification will consist of trees, benches, drinking fountains and improved landscaping. There will be an update presented to the City Council meeting - most likely in September. Construction should begin in early 2013.

Breakfast with San Ramon Mayor, Bill Clarkson (Open to everyone) - breakfast will be held on monthly on the last Friday of each month at Clementine's Restaurant, 18070 San Ramon Valley Restaurant, from 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM.

San Ramon TownHall Meetings
I believe listening is one of the most important things that your elected officials can do. We have taken many steps to make it easier for our residents to become and stay informed and to let us know what is on their minds. The City has hosted two well attended Town Hall meetings.
The San Ramon City has also approved the use of Peak Democracy, which will be labeled "Open San Ramon" on the City's website. This is a tool to facilitate online discussions between Cities and it's residents. Click here to sign up

Monday – October 1, 2012
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Dougherty Station Community Center
