Award for Calabasas Civic Center

The Calabasas Civic Center received a 2009 Project of the Year Award from the Ventura County chapter of the American Public Works Association. The Civic Center, completed in July at a cost of $41 million, is now eligible for a national award from the association. “The Civic Center is a project that has been a dream of the community for over 18 years even before the final (city) incorporation papers were approved,” said Dennis Washburn, a Calabasas City councilmember and Civic Center Task Force member. The Civic Center includes City Hall, a public library, a public plaza and outdoor amphitheater. The center will be certified by the U.S. Green Building Council as the first Gold LEED-rated Civic Center in the nation, Washburn said. Mark R. Madler
