The city of Livermore initiated the process to convert the 85-acre property, formerly a nine-hole golf course, into an open space. The property was locked into the existing open space designation by voter approval of Measure FF in the 2016 general election, which requires a vote of the people for any future change to the land use designation. In 2016, the LARPD contracted with RRM Design Group to engage the community in the development of a conceptual plan for the open space. Over the course of the community outreach process, a total of five alternative designs were presented at a series of well-attended community workshops. RRM presented the Final Concept Plan to the Board of Directors October 25,2017. The Board unanimously voted to endorse the Springtown Open space conceptual Plan and referred it to the Livermore City Council for their consideration.
