Document Description
The proposed project is the acquisition of a one-acre site located east of Pulgas Avenue, between Bay Road and Montage Circle, for the future development of a library. The purchase agreement between the City and the current property owner requires that either a library or community center use be developed on-site. For purposes of analysis, a two-story, approximately 23,275-sf library is assumed. The future library design would undergo project-level environmental review prior to approval. Furthermore, if the property is acquired by the City, a General Plan Amendment and Rezoning from Ravenswood Employment Center (REC) to Public Institutional (PI) would be necessary prior to approval and implementation of a library.
