San RamonHistory:

Today San Ramon is a dynamic young city, one of California’s outstanding urban villages.  It has avariety of homes, parks and stores and a major employment center — all in a setting of remarkable beauty. Since 1980, the population of San Ramon has increased from 22,356 to 74,378 in 2012.

As with the entire Tri-Valley, agriculture was the basis for San Ramon economy until suburban development began.  In 1966 the new Interstate 680 freeway was completed through San Ramon to Dublin. For years a sign “San Ramon Population 100″ accurately reflected the number of people in the area, with the whole San Ramon Valley having just over 2000 people for many decades.

In 1970 Western Electric purchased 1,733 acres  and proposed a “new town” complete with a variety of housing, green belts, stores and light industry, placed in the center of San Ramon.  Eventually part of the land became new homes and, in 1978, 585 acres became today’s Bishop Ranch Business Park, a premier modern office development.

The development of Bishop Ranch, in 1982, transformed San Ramon into a significant regional employment center. A master-planned office park with some retail elements, Bishop Ranch provides a healthy tax base for the city. It is situated on 585 acres once owned by Western Electric, and was farmland before that. Current tenants include the corporate headquarters of Chevron Corporation (formerly ChevronTexaco), as well the West Coast headquarters of AT&T (which had been the headquarters of Pacific Bell from about 1983, when it relocated from downtown San Francisco, until the merger with SBC Communications that created the current AT&T).

In 1983 San Ramon voters decided overwhelmingly to incorporate as a separate city and took control over development, police, parks and other services.  A new library, community center, parks and hospital testify to the energy which the new city displayed.  No longer a quiet outskirt of the Bay Area, San Ramon looks to the future and values its past.

dvnhoodThe city of San Ramon is planning a new 40-acre (160,000 m2) downtown that will include a public plaza, hotel, independent cinema and a mix of residential units plus a new city hall, library, transit center and office space, to be developed by Sunset Development Company, the original developers of Bishop Ranch. The start of construction of the new City Center has been temporarily postponed due to the economic decline; however the project is fully approved and ready to move forward when economic conditions improve.

Education is an important aspect in the San Ramon community’s quality of life. It’s vision for a successful future establishes an education system that is challenging and distinct enough to hearten the highest levels of student achievement, and provides enduring learning opportunities. San Ramon’s public schools are part of the acclaimed San Ramon Valley Unified School District, serving approximately 20,300 students. In 2007, Diablo Valley College opened a branch campus in San Ramon. The city is also home to California High School, founded in 1973 and ranked 250th best high school in the United States by Newsweek.

The topography of San Ramon is varied, featuring a mix of the rolling hills of the Diablo Range and the flatter basin of the San Ramon Valley. The city is predominantly urban and residential; however much of the land around the city’s perimeter regions remains undeveloped, and is covered by grasslands and oak tree orchards. During the drier months the grasses are golden; with the precipitation of winter and spring, the grasses turn green. Major annual events include the Art and Wind Festival on Memorial Day weekend, the Fourth of July Picnic and Fireworks Show and the Primo’s Run for Education in October.

Originally, a city park located on a hill overlooking Bollinger Canyon Road and San Ramon Valley Blvd. was to be named Alta Mesa Park.During the construction of the park, the City Council voted to change the name to Memorial Park to honor Tom Burnett, a San Ramon resident and victim from Flight 93 killed in the September 11 attacks of 2001.  The park was dedicated on September 11, 2002.

San Ramon is dedicated to continuous improvement of the quality of life which make its citizens proud.  With easy access and a full range of services, it is little wonder that San Ramon is one of Contra Costa County’s most exciting and progressive cities.
