FOUND. IS HONORED TO ANNOUNCE THE COMMISSION OF
SUNNYVALE CIVIC CENTER
The Sunnyvale Civic Center, on the corner of El Camino Real and Mathilda Avenue, is home to the City of Sunnyvale’s (City) primary administrative facilities (City Hall), Library, and Department of Public Safety Headquarters. The goals for modernizing the Civic Center are straightforward—to improve access to City services, preserve or enhance current City service levels, and improve technology to expand service capabilities. The Civic Center Master Plan (Master Plan) contains a long-term, multi-phased vision of the entire campus: constructing three new facilities—a City Hall, Department of Public Safety Headquarters, and Library; razing older structures on site, relocating most of the on-grade parking to underground spaces; increasing open space and native landscape; and modernizing the entire campus. During the phased construction, the City prefers to keep the campus in situ with its services functioning at full capacity, and to avoid relocating any employees to temporary facilities.
