Drive Ph. 328-7751 Decision Dec. 13 Central School grounds a new library site? reach trustees agreement By RICHARD BURKE Slaff Writer The city plans to build a new library next year but city coun- cil cannot decide where it Should be located. A recommendation to coun-. cit that the building bp put up on the Central School property was tabled Monday for one week, to be discussed at that time in closed session. Reconsideration has been given to the Central School site since a Sept. 2fl council resolution was passed stating that the library board should not feel locked into the pre- viously designated city hall an- nex site. The library board has reaf- firmed the Central School prop- erty as its first choice for the library. The recommendation put be- fore council by City Manager Tom Nutting included closing of 5th Ave. between 8th and 9th St. S. This would serve to integrate the library with the Bowman Arts Centre, providing large open space area for ac- tive and passive use" between the two buildings. George Watson, representing Robins Mitchell Watson archi- tects, told council he is in favor of closing 5th Ave. He said it would make more exciting possibility" for development of an arts com- plex centred around the Bo man centre and the library. The entire recommendation met with mixed r e a c t ion around the council table. Although there was little op- position to the idea that the Central School property is the best site for the library, Alder- men Vaughan Hembroff and Cam Barnes were not convinc- ed the land can't be developed commercially. Aid. Vera Ferguson favors the Central School site as part of the Civic Centre complc'. Aid. Steve Kotch favors the City Hall Annex sile. The architects have request- ed a site be chosen before they begin plans for the building.
