Project Partners: Contra Costa County; Recreation & Park District

Working together

The library project was coordinated closely with our partners, Contra Costa County and the Recreation and Park District.  The three agencies have a Memorandum of Understanding that provided the framework for development of the new library on 5 acres at 1700 Oak Park Boulevard; construction by a future buyer of a small single-family residential project to go on the existing library site; and construction of sports fields on 5 acres behind the new library. All partners share in the common infrastructure, environmental review, design and construction costs. CLICK HERE to read the MOU. In addition, the County Board of Supervisors adopted the Oak Park Properties Strategic Plan that provides for the ultimate use of the Oak Park Properties by the project partners.
