Springtown Open Space Conceptual Plan

Current status (Updated 9/2017):  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 initial 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. 


An additional step was added into this process planning project.  This step involves RRM Design Group using data collected from the public meetings with three optional plans and from the email/mail comments received, to develop two conceptual designs to present to the public.  The two conceptual designs are now available online, below, and the public viewed the two designs and commented on them at a meeting on Tuesday, July 25, 2017.  The public was able to provide comments via email if they did not attend the meeting (the deadline for comments has passed).  


The consultant developed a recommended design plan that they presented to the LARPD Board at a Special Board Meeting and Public Hearing on Monday, September 11, 2017. The public was invited to attend and the Board of Directors received public comment.  Additional meeting information is available by clicking, below.  With direction from the LARPD Board, the consultant will revise the design plan and present it at a future Board meeting, projected to be the Wednesday, October 25, 2017 Board Meeting at 7 pm at the Robert Livermore Community Center.  Notice of all public meetings will be posted on the District’s website and will be advertised through other sources.
