Chevron / Texaco as a major employment center with more than 16,500 employees. San Ramon's population of about 51,000 is expecting to grow to approximately 90,000 with the completion of Windermere and other developments.

San Ramon is made up of many distinct neighborhoods ranging from the mid 1960's to new housing developments in progress today.
San Ramon's Bishop Ranch changed the character of the city from a bedroom community to a major employment center with many shopping centers, 12 parks, a hospital, a library, a community center, and a senior center.
Prior Agriculture was the basis for San Ramon's economy until the 1960's when the new state highway, I-680 was completed. Developers built the first housing tracks at the county line next to Dublin. The Valley Community Services District (VCSD) was set up to provided urban services for these homes, sewer, water, fire protection, garbage collection and parks.
In 1983, San Ramon voters decided by an overwhelming vote to incorporate as a separate city and took control over development, police, parks and other services. The new library, community center, city hall, park and hospital construction soon followed.
