The 2015 Council- approved Parks Master Plan recommended a new community center at Ladera Linda. Public attendees at  two Ladera Linda Public Workshops in 2014 and 2015, expressed strong support for a new center.

On September 1st, 2015 Council authorized staff to create and distribute a Request for Proposal, to  hire a consultant to conduct a park master plan design project. A revised RFP was issued on April 21, 2016.
City Staff reviewed the 5 submitted proposals and selected two finalists: Gonzalez Goodale Architects and Richard Fisher Associates (RFA). A panel of staff and a representative from the Ladera Linda Home Owner Association interviewed the finalists. RFA was the unanimous selection. 

The City Council approved a professional service agreement to RFA on June 6th, 2016.
The project consultant, RFA has begun preliminary work on the Ladera Linda Park Master Plan.

Neighborhood Impact

Staff and RFA have discussed the importance of emphasizing Council's directive that, "less is more, " in park projects and to capture the residents' support for a low-key neighborhood sized community-based project.
