Civic Center Design Standards

Project Overview
In 2014, the City Council tasked the Planning Department with establishing a set of Civic Center Design Standards as the first phase of a longer term goal of creating a Civic Center Specific Plan. 

To complete the project, the City Council appointed a 10-member Civic Center Design Standards Task Force who worked with the City’s design team, MIG Consultants and John Kaliski Architects, to prepare a set of design standards to enhance the Civic Center area. 

The project included a kick-off community event and task force meetings. See below for a list of meeting materials.

Due to ongoing litigation involving Measure R, no further activity is anticipated in the immediate future on this project until all legal challenges have been completed.
