New Library Project Update

On December 6, the Village and Library Boards met together to discuss the new library location including listening session feedback, possible locations, and next steps. The Village Board took the following action:

  • Voted to remove the 249 N. Main St. property from consideration for the new library.
  • Asked the library to focus on additional information on two potential sites including preliminary site layouts and site-specific cost estimates for the following:
    • Former School Site (Alpine Parkway across from the Food Pantry)
    • Current Library block on Brook St. (including library/senior center/post office property)
  • Requested soil borings be completed at the former school site. (Soil borings are already available for the Brook St. property.)
  • A joint meeting will be scheduled for a future date to discuss this additional information.
