The proposed Final Environmental Impact Report for the Oak Park Properties Specific Plan – which envisions a new library building, park and 34 homes on Oak Park Boulevard - has been released.
Copies are available for review at Pleasant Hill City Hall (100 Gregory Lane), the Pleasant Hill Library (1750 Oak Park Boulevard), and the Contra Costa County Department of Conservation and Development (30 Muir Road, Martinez).
The report is also posted on the City website, pleasanthillca.org.
The Oak Park Properties project is a partnership of Contra Costa County (the principal landowner), the City of Pleasant Hill and the Pleasant Hill Recreation and Park District.
It comprises two components, a Civic Project at 1700 Oak Park Boulevard, and a Residential Project at 1750 Oak Park Boulevard.
The Civic Project includes construction of a new library building, a park with athletic fields, and improvements to the Grayson Creek corridor. In addition, the Civic Project includes significant improvement to Monticello Avenue and Oak Park Boulevard.
Construction of the new library building, along with infrastructure improvements, is anticipated to begin in 2020 and finish in late 2021. The construction schedule for the new park is to be determined.
The Residential Project at 1750 Oak Park Boulevard includes demolition of the existing County-owned library building and vacant administrative offices, and construction of 34 single-family homes, seven accessory dwelling units, and a new pocket park.
Construction of the Residential Project could start as early as fall 2020.
