Civic Center Specific Plan

Prompted by its purchase of 11.3 acres of former RAND property across from City Hall, the City of Santa Monica adopted a comprehensive update to the Santa Monica Civic Center Specific Plan (CCSP) in 2005. The CCSP was amended in June, 2011 to reflect a circulation change and adjust the requirements for the Early Childhood Education Center, a joint project of the City and Santa Monica College, which will be under construction in 2017-2018, providing a teaching facility that provides childcare to more than 100 children.  The most recent CCSP Update was adopted by Council in January 2017 to move the location of the City Services Building to the rear of City Hall.  The City Services Building is anticipated to begin construction by 2018.
