At a Special Meeting on January 29th & 30th, the City Council adopted key land use elements to form the Downtown Plan for City-owned land on the east and west sides of South Livermore Avenue. The Downtown Plan responds to the priorities identified by the community through an extensive public engagement process by adding to the existing parking supply, carefully controlling building height and location, and incorporating a large new park, which will be named for the Livermore Stockmen’s Rodeo Association and celebrate the city’s western heritage and the contributions of the local veterans and armed forces personnel. The Council also approved sites for a science museum, blackbox theater, limited retail, and 130 workforce housing units.
To understand the public’s priorities for Downtown, the City Council initiated a substantial public outreach effort which started in April 2017 with a Downtown Steering Committee. The process continued with a robust community outreach program between August and November 2017, to gather feedback on Downtown priorities and recommended improvements. The Council listened to this feedback and approved a Downtown Plan that reflects the community’s input.
