Medeiros Parkway Public Meeting

Zone 7 is planning a project along the Medeiros Parkway reach of the Arroyo Mocho in Livermore, planned for construction in 2019. In response to public comments, this project has been revised since the initial CEQA public review in summer 2018. The smaller project now proposed seeks to reduce flood risk by restoring flow to the natural floodplain in the Oak Grove Nature Reserve, without any significant excavation. Zone 7 invites the project neighbors and interested public to attend this meeting to provide input on our design. We will review the proposed work which includes lowering the Arroyo Mocho bike trail. Additional work, contingent on grant funding, may include invasive species removal and improvements to the existing dirt trails in the Oak Grove Nature Reserve.
Date: Wednesday, December 5, 2018
Time: 6:00 – 8:00 PM
Location: Zone 7 Boardroom, 100 North Canyons Parkway, Livermore, CA 94551
