As much as I would've liked to see a gorgeous new library sitting on top of the hill downtown, it has been explained to me by KJ Harris that one of the main reasons to not have it there is the limited access and maneuvering room for fire trucks and other emergency vehicles. That is the best explanation for not using that spot.

Joe Craig's idea which follows ideas outlined by Pat Jirschele , John Stewart and others is excellent, but I understand that re-modeling the present structure does not qualify for the 6 million.

Hmmm.seems to be a never ending conundrum.
