The City has compiled a draft CEQA report that will be available for public review and comment for the next 30 days. Once the 30-day public review period ends, the project team will bring the final conceptual design and draft CEQA report to Commissions and City Council for final approval. More information on the CEQA review is listed in the "News Feed" below.

Once the 30-day public review period ends, the project team will bring the final conceptual design and draft CEQA report to Commissions and City Council for final approval.

Once approval of the report and final conceptual design is secured, the project team will further develop design and engineering drawings. These documents will be used to obtain permits, solicit bids for construction in a public process, and eventually construct the park. As we move closer to the implementation of the vision into a built reality, we'd like to thank the Residents, Commission and Council members, and myriads of other contributors, for getting us to this point. The result will be a triumphant enrichment to our community!




Background

Since 2002, the City of Cupertino has worked towards the transformation of Lawrence Mitty site into a park facility. The 7.83-acre site is located west of the Lawrence Expressway and to the east of Saratoga Creek. The property was historically used for agriculture and beginning in the 1970’s the property was used for construction stockpile storage and staging by the Santa Clara County Roads and Airports Department. The City acquired the Lawrence-Mitty site and annexed the property from San Jose into Cupertino’s jurisdiction.

The City is developing the site as a park facility which will include an extension of the San Tomas Aquino – Saratoga Creek Trail. As a first step in its development, the City produced a master plan that reflects community needs and the goals laid out in the 2020 Parks and Recreation System Master Plan. Throughout the development of the Master Plan the City worked with the public, numerous Commissions, and the City Council to solicit input and ideas on design and amenities to provide at the site.
