Primary goals of the Measure O program are to build a new police operations building with 9-1-1 dispatch and Emergency Operations Center (EOC) that would withstand natural disasters, and a safe, energy-efficient library that would meet earthquake and fire building codes.
The general scope of the Measure O - Civic Center Improvements were identified as priorities through the following Civic Center Master Plan efforts:
Reviewing the existing Civic Center East Master Plan, Library Needs Study, Heritage Orchard Study and the Campbell & Historical Museum Strategic Plan;
Performing a community needs assessment that includes an evaluation of both current and projected needs for Library and City Hall space;
Developing a vision for the Civic Center complex;
Adopting guiding principles for the development;
Performing an analysis of relocating the existing Historical Museum or constructing an annex within or adjacent to a new library building that could provide additional exhibit space and display space for agriculture artifacts;
Assessing the parking implications of larger buildings and evaluating the feasibility of providing additional parking & including a parking structure – for the Civic Center complex;
Addressing needs for replacing the City’s EOC as part of a new library or other component of the Civic Center complex;
Holding at least one Community Meeting and make presentations and solicit input from Library and Museum stakeholders, including the Civic Improvement Commission and Historic Preservation Board;
Providing two or more Civic Center complex conceptual layouts with accompanying development strategies;
Formulating a recommendation with an associated development (phasing) plan and an associated financing plan which would identify the costs of each development phase; and Identifying revenue options for funding the construction associated with this Master Plan.
