CVSan is pleased to announce that the West County Board of Zoning Adjustments (BZA) voted 3-1 to approve CVSan’s proposal to construct a new Operations and Engineering Building at the former Cal Trans Corporation Yard site, which is located at the intersection of Center Street and East Castro Valley Boulevard. The final project design will be completed by the end of 2021, and construction is expected to start in 2022.
The Operations and Engineering Building will be 20,000-square feet, encompassing two levels of office space, conferences rooms, a new Board Room for public meetings, and vehicle bays to securely park CVSan’s maintenance vehicles. The site development will complement the surrounding community and enhance the visual aesthetics with Bay-Friendly Landscaping. In addition, there will be a demonstration garden that will be used as an educational tool for CVSan’s Third Grade 4R’s Field Trip program.
CVSan General Manager Roland Williams stated: “The BZA approval of this project is a major step toward its completion. We have made tremendous efforts to take the feedback we have received from the community, the local advisory committee, and the BZA to ensure that this is a building Castro Valley will be proud of. It will also be a functional building that will serve as a home base for all CVSan operations, so that we can continue to provide the community with high-performance, low-cost wastewater services for the next 70 years”.
