General Plan, Housing Element, and
Climate Action Plan Updates

Upcoming Meeting

Thursday, June 27, 2024: Climate Action Plan Citizens Task Force Regular Meeting

The San Ramon Climate Action Plan (CAP) is the primary implementation strategy to comply with State climate and greenhouse gas (GHG) legislation. In 2021, the City initiated a CAP Update as part of the General Plan 2040 Project. However, due to State law timing requirements, the majority of the General Plan 2040 Project was adopted by December 2023 while the CAP Update was scheduled to follow in 2024, with ultimate adoption by the City Council in Winter 2025. The CAP Task Force was established by the City Council to provide feedback to the Planning Commission and City Council on the CAP Update.

On Thursday, June 27th, the Task Force will receive the staff report and presentation by City Staff and the City's Consultant, accept public comment, and will provide feedback at the next Task Force meeting scheduled for July 25, 2024. The meeting will begin at 4:00 P.M.

The full meeting agenda for the June 27 Climate Action Plan Citizens meeting is available online here.

We invite you to join us in person:

HCD certifies the adopted

2023-2031 Housing Element!

On February 27, 2023, the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) found the City of San Ramon’s revised Adopted 2023–2031 Housing Element to be in substantial compliance with State Housing Element Law.

San Ramon is the first city in Contra Costa County and the Tri-Valley to receive certification!



The General Plan, Housing Element, and CAP Update is a pivotal opportunity to shape the future of San Ramon. Through this process, the City and its consultants (Consultant Team), with input from the public and stakeholders, will consider new, pertinent topics, such as climate change and resiliency, housing environmental justice, and public health, to ensure that San Ramon is positioned to achieve its vision for the future.

The current General Plan, San Ramon 2035 was adopted on April 28, 2015 and last amended on October 21, 2019. The State Office of Planning and Research (OPR) recommends the General Plan be comprehensively updated every 10-15 years to address emerging issues and challenges. The Update Project is scheduled for completion in 2022.

As the Update progresses, this website will be your primary source for information. Please check back regularly for drafts of project documents and opportunities to engage in the Update process – including dates and times of events and meetings.
