On December 14, 2015, the design team of Hodgetts and Fung presented the Legacy Park Art Enhancement Plan to City Council. The presentation outlines a variety of enhancements identified in the park where art can be integrated or placed. The next step of the project is to apply construction costs to the various phases identified in the plan and return to the Cultural Arts Commission to decide how to fund and implement each phase.
The current project only outlines potential areas for placement or incorporation of art, it does not cover the actual selection or solicitation of art.
The Legacy Park Art Enhancement Plan called for the development of conceptual designs, including sites for public art and park features, that would utilize water from the future wastewater treatment facility, as well as site analysis, community outreach, and conceptual schematic and master plan design.
The project includes a review of the constraints and restrictions associated with the Malibu Legacy Park property (23500 Civic Center Way), community outreach to address priorities, issues and concerns, design input from the public, and a cost estimate for construction.
The draft plan was presented to City Council in December 2015. City Council directed staff to have the Cultural Arts Commission review a final plan that includes determining project and phasing costs, identifying potential funding options, change the art installations adjacent to the Country Mart corridor from Phase 3 to Phase 1, and work with the Country Mart owner to identify pedestrian connections between Legacy Park and their commercial property. The Commission is currently working on finalizing project phasing and costs for each enhancement element. For more information on the project contact (310) 456-2489 ext. 337.
