A model of sustainable design, the LEED® certified City Hall landscape includes a public plaza and an educational landscape composed of native plants that display the diversity of California’s many habitats. The drought-tolerant plantings also recycle building and site run-off as irrigation water, minimizing impact on the municipal storm drainage system by filtering and storing water on-site. A creek-inspired fountain evokes the journey water takes from the Sierra Nevada to the Pacific Ocean. Carducci Associates’ design creates spaces for community and civic events, environmental education, public art, and the enjoyment of natural beauty within the urban environment.
