Lions Wayside and Delucchi Parks
In 2014 the City adopted a master plan for Lions Wayside and Delucchi Parks and began the process to implement the master plan soon thereafter. However, as the City started work on the environmental documents for the project it was determined that the City’s plan to underground Kottinger Creek through Lions Wayside Park would not meet the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
City staff has been working with the various regulatory agencies (Army Corp of Engineers, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Regional Water Quality Control Board, etc.) since 2014 to come to a resolution on a design that would meet the needs of our residents while also meeting the requirements of the regulatory agencies.
We now have a preliminary design that expands the park, adds more parking, adds more view areas for concerts and movies, and meets the requirements of the regulatory agencies! And we think the design meets or exceeds the goals and objectives that residents outlined in 2014.
2014 was nearly a decade ago though so we are conducting public outreach to get the community’s input on the updated design. With that input we will update the 2014 Lions Wayside and Delucchi Parks Master Plan. We are having Community Outreach Events to talk about the proposed plan and obtain input on the design on the following days/times:
Public Outreach Event #1 – Pleasanton Farmer’s Market on Saturday, May 14th (Comment Summary)
Public Outreach Event #2 – Concert in the Park on Friday, June 17th from 5:30-7:00pm at Lions Wayside Park
Public Outreach Meeting – Wednesday, June 22nd from 6:00-7:30pm at Lions Wayside Park
Please come and join us and tell us what you think about the new design!
