I've posted some more "light reading" for those of you following the expansion planning process closely!
The Building Program statements are the instructions to the architect on the design: how the building should function, what proximities are needed, etc. It also details what goes into the space. For example, the computer classroom space needs to seat 12 a computers with space an instructor and projection at the front of the room. It is with these documents that the architects are now working to create the schematic design of the building.
Building program, Downtown: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3
Building program, North Side Branch: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3
The results of our December 5-8 poll of registered voters has also been added. 2/3 of respondents support or strongly support placing the library expansion question on the April 2009 ballot.
And if you are really interested in know the latest, come to the Village of Plainfield Committee of the Whole meeting on Monday, December 15, at 7 pm when I update the Village Board on the expansion plan!
