Village Entrance Project

Village Entrance Project Current Status: Village Entrance Project Current Status: City Council meetings were held on March 26, June 11, and October 1, 2013, followed by a facilitated workshop on November 12, 2013, to discuss the proposed Village Entrance Project.  At that workshop, the City Council voted to pursue a scaled-down project involving a landscaped promenade to beautify the site, and creation of additional surface parking at the recently-acquired property at 725 Laguna Canyon Road.  Pursuant to City Council direction on February 4, 2014, staff is developing a Request for Proposals for a design team that would include a landscape architect, civil engineer and environmental consultant.  On April 1, 2014, the City Council approved a contract with Griffin Structures, Inc. to coordinate public outreach and assist with the design team selection process.  On July 16,2014, a community workshop was held to obtain feedback on specific elements and features, such as the historic sewer digester, carports and Laguna Canyon Road median.  The presentation can be viewed by clicking on the link below, and the results of the workshop will be presented to the City Council in September 2014.
