Project is on Track as City Submits Additional Information to Coastal Commission

The City of Santa Monica is on schedule to complete the Civic Multipurpose Sports Field by or before winter 2021. The City submitted a Coastal Development Permit to the Coastal Commission on August 1, 2018, two months ahead of schedule. On August 31, the Coastal Commission requested additional information regarding project plans and parking data in order to deem the application complete. This type of request is a regular part of the application process and the City is responding expeditiously. Construction is anticipated to begin in January 2020.

“We are holding to our aggressive timeline for the Civic Field and are confident that after providing the Commission with minor clarifications the application will be noted as complete,” said Public Works Director Susan Cline. “We look forward to going out to bid on construction.”
