The online workshop will be offered at three different times on Friday, December 10th: 9am, 2pm and 5pm.
What is this Project?
The new modern library portion of the project, funded by voter-approved Measure S, will replace the existing Downtown library. The project is located in Downtown Santa Cruz at a city-owned surface parking lot (Lot 4), bounded by Cathcart, Cedar and Lincoln Streets. The weekly Downtown Farmers’ Market that is currently located on Wednesdays at the project site will move to a permanent home in Downtown Santa Cruz.
The City Council-approved Library Mixed Use Project includes:
A modern library with resources for all
At least 100 units of very low income housing
A parking structure that consolidates current surface parking lots and results in a net-zero increase in parking spaces in Downtown Santa Cruz.
