The Campbell City Council has approved funding for park improvements. The Public Works Department is in the beginning stage of design and outreach for a new playground area (ages 5-12) to be located at the Campbell Community Center by the existing sports fields.
The project was presented and approved by both the Parks and Recreation Commission (November 2, 2016) and City Council (December 6, 2016).
The City of Campbell issued a Request for Proposals and a total of ten proposals were received, reviewed and ranked. The top three firms were interviewed and SSA Landscape Architects of Santa Cruz was selected as the top design firm. The project is currently in the preliminary design phase.
Please contact the Publics Work department at the addresses below with any questions or concerns.
The Parks and Recreation Commission Subcommittee met on May 8th at 6:30pm to review park design alternatives and provide their comments and input. This was the third public meeting in a series of 5 meetings designed to collect public input on the new play area. Alternatives presented at this meeting were based on input received at the April 10th public meeting with project stakeholders. This meeting was attended by tenants and community members as well as two Parks and Recreation Commissioners.
The meeting presentation and notes can be found below.
The project team will present the preferred alternative to the City Council at their regularly scheduled meeting on July 18th at 7:30pm. This meeting is open to the public.
Next Meeting: Tuesday, July 18th at the regularly scheduled City Council Meeting.
