Saranap and Parkmead Community Meeting

July 11, 6:30pm – 8:30pm 

Thank you to the community members who attended the Saranap/Parkmead community meeting for Envision Contra Costa 2040! Approximately 25 people attended, expanding the conversations from the Saranap Avenue/Boulevard Way Planning Process to formulate a vision for the entire Saranap and Parkmead area. Some of the recurring comments we heard included:

  • Preserve the family-friendly, semi-rural neighborhood character.
  • Support local neighborhood-serving businesses.
  • Maintain the green buffer along Las Trampas Creek.
  • Designate a neighborhood park in a central location.
  • Enhance accessibility with connected bike and walking paths.
  • Implement traffic-calming measures to slow traffic and increase pedestrian safety.
  • Provide safe routes to schools for children and families.
  • Provide safe connections from Parkmead to Saranap and Walnut Creek, specifically along Olympic Boulevard.
  • Encourage mixed-use development along major thoroughfares.
  • Align the General Plan and Zoning Code land use designations.

Thanks again to everyone who provided input. To engage online, visit the website and stay tuned for future County meetings.
