Development of a public park (sports complex), community center, public works yard with public works building facility and combined police department office and maintenance facilities, vehicle and equipment storage areas, public access and parking facilities on approximately 26 acres.
The project is proposed to be located in the Burns Valley Area, north of Olympic Drive and South of Burns Valley Drive, behind the Safeway Shopping Center, Clearlake, CA (Accessors Parcel No. 010-026-40). Also, see Figures 1, 2, and 3 (location maps).
The park would include one full size baseball field, two smaller little league baseball fields, two small Tee-Ball Fields, a full-size soccer field. The project would include development of an approximately 15,000 to 20,000 square foot recreation center building for use for public events and activities (see Figure 7-concept building elevations). This building would contain sports features, such as basketball and volleyball courts. Being located next to the baseball area, a concession building/stand would be constructed next to or as part of this larger building. These combined facilities would be located on the east side of the project site.
On the west side is proposed an approximate 12,000 square foot public works building, including a Police Department investigation facility. This building would include a vehicle wash station, and sections for equipment repair. This public works yard would be used to store and maintain city public vehicles, including public works and police department cars, trucks, and heavy equipment.
Access to the project would be from a number of driveways/streets including access from Olympic Drive and Burns Valley Road. Approximately 365 parking spaces would be developed along access roads through the park (including 20 for the public works/police facility). Other related improvements would include sidewalks, fencing , lighting features, baseball field protective netting (see Figure 10) and restroom facilities. All play fields will include lighting to allow for night operations.
Project development is envisioned to be constructed in two development phasing depending on funding availability and City priority. The first phase, is to develop the sports complex components, with the recreation center building and public works hop building to come later.
