Springtown Open Space Master Plan
The City of Livermore has asked the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District to lead the Springtown Open Space Master 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 Master Plan, Assistant General Manager John Lawrence at email@example.com.
Current status (Updated 3/22/17): The consultant for this project, RRM Design Group, collected information on the site, including the background on past development and operational activities, from a number of local stakeholder groups and from the two general public input meetings held on January 30 and 31 (view January 30 and 31 Community Meeting Results here). All of these meetings involved receiving feedback from the community about how the community would like to see the open space property used. RRM Design Group is now using data collected from these meetings to develop three different conceptual design possibilities. These conceptual designs will be available for the public to review and comment on in approximately 5 weeks. At that time, the public is encouraged to comment on any design elements in any of the three conceptual designs. There is no need to rank the three conceptual designs or “vote” for just one. All public comments and input will be used to create one final proposed design. This final proposed design may include portions of all three preliminary designs. The final proposed design is expected to be presented to the LARPD Board of Directors and the City Council in late summer. The public meeting for this conceptual design review will be April 27, 2017 at 6:30 pm at Croce Elementary School, located at 5650 Scenic Avenue in Livermore, CA.
