The City recently completed a City-wide Parks Master Plan for all park sites in the City. After extensive public outreach, the City Council approved this plan on October 6, 2015. The 2009 Coast Vision Plan which included a conceptual plan for the Civic Center site was folded into the Parks Master Plan.
The Parks Master Plan recommended a comprehensive Master Plan Design and Public Outreach Process for the Point Vicente Park/Civic Center which includes City Hall. The Master Plan noted that current buildings are in need of significant renovation to meet organizational needs, comply with safety and code requirements, and comply with all Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines.
Funding for the Civic Center Master Plan is included in the FY 16-17 budget , which includes the current 5-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).
The CIP describes the Civic Center project as “[developing] a master plan for the Civic Center property including a City Hall, public safety facilities and corporation yard. Planning work will include establishing a property footprint to adjust the property lines at the park.”
