WRNS Studio, the architectural firm that designed the master plan and energy-efficient library for Sacred Heart Schools in Atherton, has been chosen to design Atherton's new civic center complex.
Atherton's City Council is scheduled to approve an initial contract with WRNS when it meets Wednesday night, March 18, at 7 p.m., in the town's council chambers at 94 Ashfield Road.
The town plans to pay the firm $3.2 million for services performed through the construction of the complex. The contract proposal before the council is for $379,480 and covers the first two phases of the design only, including changes to the master plan and conceptual design of the complex.
Also on the March 18 agenda:
● A master plan for Holbrook-Palmer Park.
● Final adoption of the town's state-required housing element, which says how the town will provide its share of the regional housing need.
● A contract that will allow the town to begin work on projects identified in the bicycle and pedestrian master plan the council gave final approval to in November.
