Pleasant Hill Library Project
The new Pleasant Hill Library will be constructed on a 3-acre portion of the vacant parcel on the opposite side of Monticello Avenue from the current library building. The map at the bottom of this page shows the site location of the new library as well as the proposed ball fields and potential housing project which is proposed by the County for the remainder of the 1700 Oak Park Boulevard site, adjacent to new the library site.
Library Design Process
The City and the County are now working on an agreement for the transfer of the 3-acres at 1700 Oak Park Boulevard for the new library location.
Concurrent with the City and County discussions, the City is moving forward with plans for the design and construction of the new library. In April 2017, the City issued a Request for Proposals from architectural firms to begin the design of the building and landscaping improvements. It is anticipated that an architect will be selected by the City Council in September 2017 to begin work in early fall. The library design process will involve extensive community outreach and engagement through workshops and public hearings.
The City also issued an RFP for Construction Management Services in August 2017. It is anticipated that a firm will be hired in October 2017 to oversee construction management through the complete design and construction of the new library.
