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.
