The scope of the Master Planning effort includes the following components:
Reviewing the existing Civic Center East Master Plan, Library Needs Study, Heritage Orchard Study and Campbell Historical Museum Strategic Plan;
Performing a community needs assessment that includes an evaluation of both current and projected needs for Library and City Hall space;
Developing a vision for the Civic Center complex;
Adopting guiding principles for the development;
Performing an analysis of relocating the existing Historical Museum or constructing an annex within or adjacent to a new library building that could provide additional exhibit space and display space for agriculture artifacts;
Assessing the parking implications of larger buildings and evaluating the feasibility of providing additional parking – including a parking structure – for the Civic Center complex;
Addressing needs for replacing the City’s EOC as part of a new library or other component of the Civic Center complex;
Holding at least one Community Meeting and make presentations and solicit input from Library and Museum stakeholders, including the Civic Improvement Commission and Historic Preservation Board;
Providing two or more Civic Center complex conceptual layouts with accompanying development strategies;
Formulating a recommendation with an associated development (phasing) plan and an associated financing plan which would identify the costs of each development phase; and
Identifying revenue options for funding the construction associated with this Master Plan.
The Civic Center Master Plan was identified as a City Council priority in Fiscal Year 2013-14. Since then, City staff, consultants, and a project Core Team have identified desired facility and program scenarios, conducted building seismic and structural assessments, and are considering placing a revenue ballot measure to fund construction for new or improved facilities for the Library and Police Department operations. The City Council recently affirmed its continued support of the Civic Center Master Plan as a City Council priority for Fiscal Year 2018-19.
