Springtown Open Space Conceptual Plan

The City of Livermore has asked the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District to lead the Springtown Open Space Conceptual Plan process. The process will include public participation. This page is designed to keep the public informed of the process that is estimated to take 12 to 18 months with the goal of producing a report to the City Council with a recommendation of a preferred option for use of the Springtown open space. Any questions should be directed to LARPD’s project manager for this conceptual plan, Assistant General Manager John Lawrence at

Current status (Updated 7/17/17): Initially, the consultant for this project, RRM Design Group, researched the site and collected additional information from a number of local stakeholder groups and two general public input meetings held on January 30 and 31 (view January 30 and 31 Community Meeting Results here).  From this information, the consultant developed three conceptual design plans that were reviewed at a public meeting held on April 27, 2017, at the Croce School multi-purpose room.  The Consultant sought the public’s comments regarding the individual design elements (dog parks, play areas, picnic facilities, activity areas, benches, community gardens, trails, sports fields, etc.), the location of the design elements, how many of these design elements should be included and any other suggestions, and any other issues or concerns or comments.  In other words, the public was not asked to vote on one conceptual drawing over another, but to comment on the elements they liked or disliked, the locations of the elements, and any other ideas they had about the future use of the property.  For those unable to attend the April 27meeting, the three conceptual drawings were posted on this website.  The public was invited to comment on the drawings until May 15. 


As part of an additional step that has been added to the Springtown planning project, RRM Design Group is now using data collected from these meetings and from the email/mail comments received, to develop two conceptual designs to present to the public. The public will be able to comment on these two concept designs before a final recommended design is presented to the LARPD Board of Directors and to City Council in late summer. This meeting will be on Tuesday, July 25, at 6:30 p.m. at the Robert Livermore Community Center (4444 East Ave.). Notice of all public meetings will be posted on the District’s website and will be advertised through other media sources.  The two conceptual designs will be available online at this website on July 26, 2017.  If you cannot attend the meeting, but would like to provide feedback, email by 5 p.m. on August 8, 2017.
