Promoting Participation in the Moraga Community

Meet the Candidates
This is a “front and center” topic among Town staff, Town Council, other Town departments, AND interested Moraga residents.  Why so?  In January of 2013, the Town Council set as one of its goals to study and potentially update the existing regulations for Hillside and Ridgeline development.


  • Comprehensive review of existing policies and regulations
  • Hiring a consultant team, headed by PlaceWorks
  • Formation of a Town Steering Committee
  •  Public workshops to gather input from a wide spectrum of Moraga residents
  • Creation of an Open Town Hall where everyone is invited to participate in an on-line forum – the 21st Century version of a “community discussion”.

Contribute YOUR thoughts and questions about Hillside and Ridgeline regulations by sending in your email address to the website above.  Here is the question that is currently seeking everyone’s in-put.  Use the link above to contribute your thoughts.


The Planning Department is working with many different developers and residents on a total of 7 major projects in different parts of Town.  Here is a list of a few of them.  To see the full list, see the town website’s page, “Major Projects” where you can see status of each, number of units, locations, etc. 

  • Camino Ricardo subdivision by the SummerHill Homes developer – to include 26 single family homes and a 2.5 acre passive public park
  • Hetfield Estates – a development of 7 homes off of Sanders Drive
  • Via Moraga – developed by Signature Projects, which has proposed 18 units on the former Bowling Alley site.

Livable Moraga Road: It's all connected!

The Livable Moraga Road project is a community-based planning effort for Moraga Road, looking at ways to improve the function, character and livability of the corridor between Campolindo High School and St. Mary’s Road. 

Key issues to be addressed:
  • Traffic flow
  • Safety for all users: auto, bicycles, pedestrians and transit
  • Connections to neighborhoods, schools and shopping areas
  • Its design and character as a key gateway to and through Moraga

Our Mission

Moraga Citizens Network is a grassroots organization dedicated to encouraging participation in the life of Moraga in these ways: First, we provide or direct members to non-partisan, factual information on current issues. Secondly, we assist the town staff in publicizing public meetings and town-sponsored events when needed. Finally, Moraga Citizens Network announces many recreational, educational, and fund raising events offered in Moraga by the Town's service organizations, library, non-profit organizations, and Saint Mary's College - all towards the end of promoting participation in the Moraga community. Our primary tool is a bi-monthly e-bulletin called The MCN Link, which you can receive by signing up here.
