Tournament Sports Complex
The 2012 Concord Reuse Project Area Plan outlines guiding principles and general land uses for the development of the former Concord Naval Weapons Stations (CNWS). The plan includes setting aside approximately 65 acres for a tournament sports complex that will host youth and amateur-level sports tournaments and may include a large indoor facility or outdoor stadium. Complementary uses in the neighboring parts of the district may provide food and lodging to users of the facility and visitors. Concessions and parking would be provided as appropriate.
The Area Plan also includes an adjacent 100-acre city-wide park that could accommodate a variety of active recreational activities, providing sports courts, sports fields, picnic areas, restrooms, and possibly cultural facilities. The City will consider the option of shifting acreage between the Tournament Sports Complex and city-wide park if the feasibility report supports that modification.
On June 13, 2018, the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Commission voted to recommend a process leading to preparation of a Feasibility Report and Conceptual Plan for the Tournament Sports Complex component of the Concord Reuse Project. In July 2018, a Request for Proposal (RFP) was issued to solicit proposals from consultants to assist with this project. After interviews, LPA Inc. was unanimously recommended for approval, and ultimately approved by the City Council.
Before development can occur on Base Reuse property, the City must approve a Specific Plan. The selected Master Developer, Lennar|FivePoint, is working with City staff to prepare a Specific Plan for the entire project area. The current preferred land use plan under evaluation is shown above. The proposed Tournament Sports Complex and city-wide park are located in Planning Area K.
