City and School District Approve Historic Agreement
                         Establishing the Emeryville Center of Community Life!                                                   

On August 4 and August 6 respectively, the City of Emeryville and Emery Unified School District approved an historic 66-year agreement to build and share in the operating and maintenance costs of the long-planned Emeryville Center of Community Life (ECCL), which started as a community vision in 2003.
The proposed ECCL Project will be built in two phases and includes new elementary and secondary schools; a school/community use library; community and school multi-purpose rooms; a Wellness Center for community and family support services; a K-8 Learning Center; and a secondary school STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) Center. The ECCL will also house the City’s Community Services and the School District’s administrative building and will be the home of much of the City’s Recreation Program.  As part of establishing the ECCL, the current joint City/School gymnasium, swimming pool, and sports/recreation fields will be renovated and additional/enhanced outdoor spaces will be added, including a learning garden, social/dining terrace, courtyard gathering space. Phase One is expected to be completed in stages, with the high school and related facilities ready for the 2015/16 school year and the elementary school as well as many of the public community facilities to be completed by the start of the 2016/17 school year with the community swimming pool scheduled to be completed by the end of Summer 2015..
