As many Alamosa folks know, the City is working hard on options for building a new library (as well as police and fire departments).
Can’t build, though, until you know where you want to do it! 🙂
Two locations have been proposed: One directly behind the current location, using the space running from the library’s back parking lot, over eastward to the train, back through the parking lot on the south side of the park, and over to Hunt Avenue.
That’s roughly speaking, of course. (The important point is that it doesn’t run into the park).
The other location is the old Kmart building out west of town towards the Walmart.
Wednesday, September 2, 7 p.m., City Council would like to hear the public’s views on the possible site locations. If would like to speak, you are allowed up to 3 minutes. If you’d like to simply stand with others at the appropriate time to silently express your preference, there will likely be time for that as well.
Here’s a great chance to truly make a difference in the future of not just Alamosa but the entire Valley (we may be a city library but we do serve the whole Valley).
If you need to know more, feel free to email me with questions or see several issues of this week’s Valley Courier for articles.
Mark your calendars!
