Sycamore Grove plans to expand go forward

A proposed expansion of Sycamore Grove Park south of Livermore will not have a significant impact on the environment, a review has determined.

The Livermore Area Recreation and Parks Department (LARPD) board on April 30 approved a negative declaration of environmental impact for the project's Resource Management Plan. A filing of the finding with Alameda County will clear the way for the board to accept the park's extension, contingent upon completion of an easement agreement with the Tri-Valley Conservancy.

The Conservancy bought the 73-acre extension property to expand Sycamore Grove and provide land for a trail connecting the park with Camp Arroyo and Del Valle Regional Park, overseen by the East Bay Regional Park District.
