The Pleasanton City Council last month signed off on either building a new skate park or expanding the current facility at Ken Mercer Sports Park.
The city will pay $115,154 to RRM Design Group for conceptual design and public outreach for the park on Hopyard Road.
Pleasanton recognized it needed a new facility seven years ago in its 2014 Parks and Recreation Master Plan, identifying it "as one of the city of Pleasanton's more significant deficiencies," according to a staff report.
The council allocated $400,000 in its 2019-21 capital improvement program (CIP) for the expansion, a process expected to take three years. The council on March 16 gave the go-ahead for the design process on its consent calendar without discussion.
A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. (CALEA) are scheduled to conduct a virtual assessment of Alameda County Sheriff's Office policies and procedures, management, operations and support services starting on Monday.
The process aims to identify how agencies comply with CALEA standards of best practices in law enforcement. Each accreditation status lasts four years.
Due to the pandemic, assessors will be analyzing ACSO remotely. A public call-in session is set for Tuesday from 1-3 p.m. via 415-915-3950, after which the public hearing will occur. Visit calea.alamedacountysheriff.org.
