The library is one component of a project proposed for 15 acres at the intersection of Oak Park Boulevard and Monticello Avenue, currently referred to as "Oak Park Properties". The proposed project includes demolition of the existing library; construction of a new library; a 34-unit single family home development; and creation of a public park with two sports fields. Construction is expected to begin Spring 2020 with anticipated completion in Fall 2021. Rendering above is the view of the library at dusk from the ballfields.
The City is planning to circulate the draft Environmental Impact Report for the Oak Park Properties project in early Summer 2019. In order to finalize and ready the project for construction, additional state and federal permits are required. The original timeline for receiving these permits needed to be adjusted, and this will delay the projects moving forward such that activity originally scheduled to begin in Fall 2019 is now anticipated to begin in late Spring 2020. As a result of the delay, Contra Costa County Supervisor Karen Mitchoff announces library services at 1750 Oak Park Boulevard will continue at the current location until late Spring 2020.
