Library Entrance Project Back Before Council

Monday, October 17, 2016 @ 5:58 AM

Prince George, B.C. – A new  entrance to the Prince George Public Library’s Bob Harkins Branch has been on the  wish list for a number of years,  and tonight,  a  new proposal  will be presented to Council.

The existing entrances  do not provide a  safe   access to the library, and  only the one  leading from the parkade  is  accessible for those with mobility issues.

Previous designs  were developed and  carried  a  price tag  of $3.9 million dollars.

A new design  has  been developed and this one is estimated to cost  just under $2.5 million which includes  design, construction  and a contingency.

While the new entrance to the library has been on the capital  list  as an unfunded item for  some time,   the new proposal  will be brought forth  for consideration of  funding  when  it comes time to develop the 2017-2021 Capital plan.
