Document Description
The Casa de Oro Branch Library Project would result in replacement of the existing County of San Diego Casa de Oro branch library in the community of Spring Valley with a new branch library at a different location. The design-build project consists of an approximately 13,000-square-foot library facility that will achieve “zero net energy,” with access off Campo Road, 52 on-site parking spaces, landscaping, and fencing. The existing library is currently located at 9805 Campo Road in a retail commercial shopping center, just southeast of the proposed project site. The project is intended to enhance the County’s regional library system and provide expanded services to its patrons within the Spring Valley community and surrounding areas. The project would be processed through the County’s Department of General Services. The site is located just north of Campo Road (State Route 94) which serves as a commercial corridor through the community. The area surrounding the project site is highly developed with a variety of land uses including institutional (school - Spring Valley Academy), commercial, general office, multi-family, and (limited) single-family residential uses. The majority of the lands comprising the project site would be leased from the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District; no lands would be purchased from the school. Additionally, the County would require acquisition of real property from an adjoining private party to the south (existing restaurant fronting onto Campo Road). This restaurant would be demolished as part of the project.
