An open-forum discussion about the city's Faria Community Park project invites the public to share their comments with the Parks and Community Services Commission on Wednesday.
Already, some folks are expressing their dismay.
In an article appearing in the San Ramon Express, a petition to stop the park development plans because of potential noise, “severe” traffic congestion, and bright lights has gathered over 100 signatures since July.
The petition was started by Deerwood Ridge resident Robert Klinger, who expressed his concern about the traffic in a public discussion about the project back in May.
At the hearing, Klinger explained that in the current community, people of all ages use the area of Deerwood Drive as a hiking path, but the traffic influx has made it unsafe for pedestrians.
The plan includes nearly 13 acres devoted to the Faria Preserve Park, and half an acre to a rose garden that would be located within the Northwest Specific Plan Area’s revised Faria Preserve Project.
The meeting will be held at the Council Chamber at 7 p.m. on August 14 at 2222 Camino Ramon.What do you think of the proposed plan? Leave your thoughts in a comment.
