The proposed project includes a major redevelopment of the existing Wildcare facilities with new animal hospital, educational, and animal housing facilities. Wildcare is a wildlife hospital, nature education center and wildlife advocacy organization. The proposal includes: relocating and restoring the historic Terwilliger Building; demolishing all other existing structures on the site; constructing a new 11,400 square foot attached three-story animal hospital and office building along with a new courtyard for gathering spaces and for the educational Ambassador Animals. In addition, the applicant proposes to install a new bridge crossing the San Rafael Creek and to improve the portion of the creek adjacent to the property by removing invasive plants and planting appropriate native plants.
The Design Review Board (DRB) conducted a Conceptual Design Review for the project on December 6, 2022. The Environmental and Design Review Permit application for this project will be considered by the Design Review Board for recommendation to Planning Commission, during the regularly scheduled DRB meeting on March 7th, 2023 at 7 pm in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
