COMMUNITY FACILITIES VISIONING AND PRIORITIZATION
From October 2016 through January 2017, the City of San Bruno undertook a community facilities visioning process to identify goals and priorities for some of its key facilities. With the assistance of Anderson Brule Architects, the City solicited community input to help shape the goals and priorities for such new community facilities as a library, recreation center, pool, and community center. This process built upon the results from the Foundation's 2015 Community Listening Campaign.
The Foundation supported the City's community facilities visioning process with strategic grants that eventually totaled $206,047.
To kick off this effort, the first Community Forum was held on October 25, 2016, and included a large group discussion and smaller break-out sessions, where community members voiced their interests and needs regarding the City's community facilities.
The second Community Forum on November 30, 2016, allowed community members to give input on prioritizing the different community facility project concepts.
The City also solicited community input via two online surveys that followed the Community Forums.
On January 23, 2017, the City held a public meeting, facilitated by Anderson Brule Architects, to present the results of the community outreach and to receive additional feedback and comments from the City’s appointed Citizen Advisory Board, Commission and Committee members.
A final presentation was made to the City Council on February 14, 2017. After discussion, the Council voted to move forward with the construction of a new recreation center and all-season swimming pool facility in San Bruno City Park and request that the Foundation provide a grant of $50 million to fund the planning, design, and construction of the facility.
