Community Partnership: The City of Larkspur and the Commons Foundation
The Story So Far:In 2013, the City Council adopted a master plan for the City's parcel at the Rose Lane Development on Doherty Drive. The Community Facility Parcel Master Plan envisions a new library and community facility for the property. Now it is time to bring this vision to life by designing the building that will be home to these uses.
The City Council requested the help of the community to bring Larkspur's vision for this gathering place to life. The community joined us for one of three Town Hall Meetings and shared their ideas and gave input.
These meetings were intended to provide the city council with ideas and input from the Larkspur Community to help them in developing a design directive for the architectural design team on how the proposed Library and Community Center should "look and feel."
The team is working on the next steps now that the Town Hall meetings are completed.
The history and development of the Master Plan can be reviewed at Community Facility Master Plan.
