Libbey Bowl Reconstruction & Improvement Project (Case Nos. DRP 09-02, T 09-13)
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
The project involves the demolition and reconstruction of Libbey Bowl, as well as site improvements. Libbey Bowl (the "Bowl") is an amphitheater located in the southwesterly corner of Libbey Park. The current condition of the Bowl is significantly out of compliance with current building standards and ADA requirements, and the Bowl needs extensive repairs. The City has determined that the facility needs to be rebuilt. The new facility would be realigned to improve visual and sound projection to be directed away from nearby residences. The overall Bowl area would be the same as the existing. The design of the new Bowl would maintain the arch and stone base design of the existing Bowl. The proposed project also includes tree removal, including mature Coast Live and Valley Oaks, as well as habitat restoration and tree replacement.
