6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4 / Online and at 1 Civic Center Drive, Scotts Valley
The Scotts Valley City Council on Wednesday will consider whether to hire architects at Urban Field Studio for a design update on the Town Center project.
A contract not to exceed $160,000 would focus on designs for 14 acres at the former Skypark Airport, according to a city staff report. The contract also would include community outreach.
The Scotts Valley City Council initially approved plans for the Town Center in 2008. The plans tried to guide development of housing and commercial projects on roughly 58 acres bounded by Mount Hermon Road, Skypark Drive and Bluebonnet Lane.
New plans for the Town Center are expected to include more homes to align with the city’s 2023-2031 Housing Element of the General Plan. The Town Center could include 657 homes or about one-third of the new homes planned for Scotts Valley in the draft Housing Element.
