Community Engagement Plan

Sunnyvale has started an exciting process to re-imagine the Civic Center located at the corner of El Camino Real and Mathilda. The existing Civic Center includes Sunnyvale's Library, City Hall, and Public Safety Department Headquarters. On February 24, the City council approved the Community Engagement Plan for the Civic Center Modernization Project. The plan includes a variety of ways to gather community input as alternatives are developed and evaluated.

Three community workshops were planned and held and a new online engagement tool, called Open City Hall, has been launched to make it easy for you to share ideas and see the input of other community members. The process is just beginning and we're open to your ideas on how to reshape the Civic Center. Please get involved. The best way to stay informed is to join our email list. You'll receive periodic project updates and notices about workshops and online engagement opportunities. Simply send an email to MyCivicCenter@sunnyvale.ca.gov.


WORKSHOP #3 Site Planning Design Charrette

Saturday, October 3, 2015 - 

The third workshop provided an opportunity to consider different site alternatives. After space needs were established, different building and site configurations were evaluated.

For example:

  • How much site area would be available for new uses if City Hall were a two or three story building rather than one story?
  • Should the plan include underground or structured parking and how much will that cost?
  • Can open, green areas be combined and how should they be used?

ALL COMMISSION WORKSHOP Site Planning Design Charrette

Wednesday, August 16, 2015 - 

City-appointed Board and Commission members formed teams and completed the same exercises as described in Workshop #3 above. They developed Conceptual land use plans.


Saturday, July 25 2015 - 

The project developed a needs assessment for the major facilities at the 26-acre Civic Center including the Library, City Hall, and Public Safety Headquarters. It considered how City services are delivered and looked for opportunities to make improvements. The community helped define potential uses for the site and weighed in with theiropinion on how space for the community is included in the plan.


Saturday, April 25, 2015 - Summary now available.
The first community workshop was designed to create a vision for a more modern Civic Center. The vision will help guide the development of land use alternatives and site plans as the project continues. Success criteria were established that will be used to evaluate different alternatives once they are developed. Some possible examples included more usable open space, green building features, tree preservation, and neighborhood compatibility.
