The Process

The Process
In January 2006, the Citizen’s Advisory Committee regarding Community Facilities recommended to City Council that the downtown civic core should include City Hall, a library, a community center, a senior center, and a cultural arts center.

In March 2006 City staff included these recommendations in the action plan for the new City Hall and started looking at the big picture — the Downtown Civic Core, not just City Hall.

Thus, the concept of an urban design for downtown Brentwood was born and expanded to include e-Bart, a possible parking structure and use of other opportunity sites.

In April 2006, City staff handpicked a very talented team of experts, which includes designers for City Hall, streetscapes, City park, and other civic facilities.

On June 22, 2006, the City held the first community outreach workshop for Downtown Brentwood 2010 that included a presentation on what makes a great downtown, image viewing and an interactive modeling session of the downtown area.

Shown in the next two panels are the results of that workshop. Residents modeled five variations of their proposed downtown and were asked to choose five or six images that appealed to them the most.
