Opportunities for input include:
Thursday, June 14 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. for an open-house-style input session in the Community Chambers Conference Room and Patio Area, 23 Russell Boulevard

Veterans Memorial Center Renovation Project - Phase I (CIP #8233)
In 2012, the City Council authorized Hibser Yamaguchi (HY) Architects to conduct a Feasibility Study to rehabilitate and modernize the Veterans Memorial Center & Theatre complex. The Feasibility Study was completed and presented to the Recreation and Park Commission in January 2013, however it was determined that undertaking the overall project in its entirety was not financially feasible.
Subsequent meetings led to the development of a more limited “Phase I” scope that would begin to address some of the improvements within a more restricted budget. In May 2016, HY Architects was contracted by the City to proceed with design and construction documents for the VMC Rehabilitation – Phase I project due to the extensive time that had already been invested toward this project. Funding for the project is a combination of funds resulting from the $1.4 million sale proceeds of 3rd & B (Bicycle Hall of Fame) facility and the City's Facility Equipment Replacement fund.

Senior Center Legacy Project - Patio Expansion (CIP #8280)
In October 2016, the City contracted with HDR, a firm specializing in engineering, architectural, environmental and construction services to provide conceptual designs for a proposed patio and outdoor expansion project slated to be constructed at the Davis Senior Center next year.
The proposed project would include a fenced patio addition at the south end of the Senior Center with access directly from the multipurpose room, with other facility improvements yet to be determined. This project is being funded in part by the former non-profit organization, Senior Citizens of Davis, Inc.
