Room for Everyone at Highland Library
Do you care about the future of the Highland City Library??
A public hearing impacting the growth of the library is scheduled for July 19th. This meeting will decide if property earmarked for a future library should be sold to a private developer which, currently, does not have plans for a library. We are encouraging citizens With many different ideas, feelings, thoughts, opinions or information relevant to this issue to attend the meeting with us, July 19, 2016 7 p.m. Council Chambers at City Hall, to hear from the council their ideas and plans for Highland City and the library.
While we recognize growth for the library is not restricted to owning this property, we do feel its relevant to the deliberation.
If you are unable to attend the meeting, and in lieu of such, please feel welcome to sign and/or comment (you do NOT need to sign the petition to share your comments) as follows:
We, the community of the Highland City Library, petition the Highland City Council to not surplus/sell the property dedicated for the future library.
Library growth and potential is not limited entirely to tax revenue. The sale of this property to a private developer will impact more than the library and its patrons. It significantly impacts the arts community, educational opportunities, information access, and communal outreach and engagement for Highland City.
