Library Board Meeting - October 2017

The Appleton Public Library Board of Trustees met Tuesday, October 17. As noted on the agenda, the board of trustees discussed and voted on the proposed request for proposal (RFP) for a mixed-use library project.

The main components of the RFP include:

• Approximately 120,000 square feet of space
• The public portion of the library should not occupy more than three floors
• The library should serve as the primary floor anchor
• Demonstration of adequate parking for the entire mixed-use development
• Proposed site should remain in the downtown Appleton area 
• Follow the goals of the updated Downtown Plan (Chapter 14 of the City of Appleton Comprehensive Plan) 

Alderperson Dannecker motioned to move the proposed deadline for RFPs from December 8, 2017 to January 12, 2018. The motion was unanimously approved. 

With the change of the RFP submission deadline, the board of trustees unanimously approved the RFP. The RFP will now go before the City of Appleton Common Council for review and a vote.
