HAPPENING NOW

 Eden Housing is partnering with the City to develop an affordable workforce housing project on the City’s Downtown site. As currently proposed, this project would provide 130 units ranging in size from one to three bedrooms near the southeast corner or Railroad Avenue and L Street. The project will front onto a large public park (Veterans Park), which will connect to Stockmen’s Park to create a signature public open space area running from Livermore Avenue to L Street.

The City Council held a public workshop in December and the site plan and architecture are currently undergoing refinement based on feedback from the Council. Eden secured a $14.4 million grant from Alameda County and recently received an extension from the County to give the project more time to complete entitlements and secure tax credit financing. The project is expected to go to the Planning Commission in April and to the City Council in May, 2021. 

Read the letter of extension from the County and view a chart demonstrating some of the Livermore workforce that would qualify to live in the Eden project, based on their income and household size.

Downtown Events

Veterans Way Ribbon Cutting

On Sunday, July 28, 2019 the City celebrated the ribbon cutting ceremony for Veterans Way, the new east / west street in Downtown Livermore.  The event took place along Veterans Way and within the surface parking area behind First Street Alehouse (Veterans Way runs from South Livermore Avenue to South L Street, between Railroad Avenue and First Street).

The event included a motorcade of vintage cars and military vehicles through Downtown Livermore. The motorcade carried representatives from veteran associations throughout Livermore, Pleasanton, and Dublin, as well as elected officials, members from the Livermore Stockmen’s Rodeo Association, and Livermore Downtown Inc. The program included remarks from Mayor John Marchand and representatives from the Stockmen’s Association, Livermore Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7265, and Livermore Downtown Inc.

A Mobile Vet Center was available to provide outreach and referral services and confidential counseling space for veterans, service members, and their families. Following the ceremony, the vintage and military vehicles were on display along Veterans Way.

Veterans Way is named in honor of the veteran community and the countless contributions veterans have made to ensure the safety and well-being of all. This two-way street runs from South Livermore Avenue to South L Street. It provides diagonal parking and convenient access to nearby amenities, including businesses and the future Stockmen’s Park.
