A San Ramon Urban Growth Boundary, Measure W ballot proposition is on the November 2, 2010 ballot for voters in the City of San Ramon in Contra Costa County.[1]

The ballot measure asks voters to approve an update to the citiy's 2030 General Plan. The 2030 General Plan is the city's land-use planning guide. The proposed update to the plan would include a provision extending the city's urban growth boundary to 1,600 acres of agricultural open space in the Tassajara Valley.[2]

Some environmental groups oppose extending the urban growth boundary. Extending the boundary would mean that urban development could occur on land where it is currently prohibited.
