City Council To Study Library/Comm. Center Tuesday

The Costa Mesa City Council will hold a Study Session in City Council Chambers at City Hall beginning at 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 13, 2015, to discuss, provide comments and direction to staff on the Donald Dungan Library and Neighborhood Community Center Project.  You can read the agenda for that meeting HERE, and the full staff report HERE.

Because this meeting will be held in Council Chambers, it's my understanding that it will be televised live on CMTV - Channel 3 on Time Warner Cable and Channel 99 on ATT UVerse, and be available on streaming video on the city website.

This process has been going on for most of this year.  The consultants have held meetings, digested input and have boiled down options for the council to consider.
Staff recommends that the City Council provide comments and direction on the following staff recommendations for the Donald Dungan Library and Neighborhood Community Center Project, specifically regarding the following:

1. Review and consider the recommended option to build new library building; renovate existing Donald Dungan library to serve as the new Neighborhood Community Center (NCC); demolition of the NCC; and proposed parking and landscape developments in two (2) phases.

2. Review and consider proposed funding options.  This could be bond measures up to $34 million, depending on the option chosen.

3. Consider an amendment to the Professional Services Agreement with Johnson Favaro for a three (3) year term with an option for an additional two (2) two-year extensions, in the amount of $1,209,125 for architectural services for the Donald Dungan Library and Neighborhood Community Center Project, City Project No. 800015

If you attend and choose to speak in this issue you'll be given two (2) minutes to present your views.  See you there.
