Title
Review and Recommendation to the City Council for the Final Park Design at One Redwood Place - Previous AMD Site
Report
BACKGROUND
A new park is being developed as part of the Irvine Company's residential development at the former AMD site at 1 AMD Place. Public improvements include the dedication of a 6.5-acre public park and the extension of Indian Wells Avenue to the east to connect with the Duane Avenue/Stewart Drive intersection. As part of the conditions of approvals and Park Agreement with the City for redevelopment of the AMD site, Irvine Company was required and agreed to construct a 6.5-acre public park. The park will be located at 1 AMD Place between E. Duane Avenue and Stewart Drive. The conceptual park design was completed through a community process, including three public meetings and the proposed design was presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission on 3/11/2020 and to the City Council on 4/28/2020 (RTC No. 20-0236) (Attachment 2). All park improvements will be constructed by the Irvine Company with a monetary cap of $12 million ($4 million of community benefit funds and $8 million of City Park Dedication Fee (PDF) funds). Once the park is completed it will be conveyed to the City pursuant to the terms of the Park Agreement (Attachment 3).

This report provides an overview of the original conceptual design (Attachment 4) to the final design for the new 6.5-acre park (Attachment 5).

The park naming process will begin after acceptance of the final design and follow Council Policy 7.3.23 (Naming / Renaming Parks & Recreational Facilities) (Attachment 6). Any name considerations will be first reviewed by the Parks and Recreation Commission with the ultimate decision made by the City Council.
