The future Los Altos Community Center, currently located on an underutilized 18-acre site, was envisioned to include Civic Services, Police, Community Center, Library, Swim Facility, and Theater, as well as preserving the existing historic facilities on the site.
To find out how the City could provide those programs in the future, a Needs Assessment identified community service priorities. ABA provided community and specific client group workshops, facilities studies, and a survey of existing conditions. Afterwards, a Facility Program was developed with facility space requirements. Master Plan Scenarios were explored to validate multiple options for the site layout; then details worked out for the opportunities, constraints and potential costs, with phasing aspects for each scenario preparing the City for the next phase of their funding.
