YES on Prop. 1 and NO on Prop.
By Dawn R. Rauwolf

I am going to vote YES on Prop. 1 and NO on Prop. 2 on Tuesday.
I live within the city limits, yet, I drive to get into town.
It is actually easier to drive to Copper Ridge than it is to
drive to downtown. I imagine a bus ride would be just as easy;
we have a great bus system.
Our new library, built in the Copper Ridge area would be close
to the Rec. Center, the Tongass School of Arts and Sciences,
The Charter School, the new aquatic center, the Rainbird Trail
and KRBD. I have no problem with this site. This site seems
like it could provide plenty of uncramped space for a superb
one-story library, with outdoor spaces around the building and
plenty of room for parking. And as far as this site being in
a rock pit... well, that's fine with me too. There are so many
neighborhoods and buildings built in old rock pits in this town
and they have all fared well. We have thrived and survived right
next to exposed rock. And we will continue to do so - isn't
that right Ketchikan?
I trust the folks who we have allowed to be in charge of this
process. I trust the Friends of the Library, the Foraker Group,
and the Library Feasibility Committee.
Vote YES on Prop. 1 and NO on Prop. 2.
