Whether a new library becomes a reality now comes down to whether people make the effort to vote on Aug. 24. After years of debate, this election will finally decide the location for a new library for our community.
Proposition 1 allows the city to build anywhere within the city limits, which includes the Copper Ridge site, at the top of the Third Avenue bypass, recommended by the Library Feasibility Committee.
Proposition 2 limits construction of a new library to city-owned property within a very specific section of the downtown core area.
For details on the complete library project, a tremendous amount of information (history, design, site comparisons, costs, funding methods, etc.) is available on www.OurNewKetchikanLibrary.org .
We all know that elections in this town have been decided by a handful of votes. It is absolutely critical that library supporters make the effort to vote on Aug. 24.
