Wow, can’t any of those tasks move in parallel?

Secure the location and funding at the same time?

6 years is crazy rediculous.

6 years is what people say when they don’t really want it to happen.

Find a way to start building in 2 years or no one will believe you are serious.

A new library needs land.

Find and buy the land NOW.

If you don't know how to do that then just ask the Fire District which has made a series of strategic land acquisitions in recent years - including the sites that were necessary to expand Station 2, Station 6, Station 3 , Station 4, Station 1 and a new Urban Search and Rescue Task Force Warehouse.

Note that this is the same city staff and Council which turned down the Fire District's offer to fully fund a Hawk crosswalk on Middlefield in front of Station 1 because they were too busy.

Do not vote to re elect the current Council members - they have absolutely no sense of what are the community's priorities.

Six more years is not moving ahead. It's a joke, a very sad and inexcusable joke.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
