Library Collage
As many of you know, the library bond measure placed on the November ballot as Measure N received a clear majority, 54%, of the votes; however, the measure did not receive the two-thirds voter support needed to pass a bond measure. So where do we go from here? To help answer that question, we want to hear from you. Please share your thoughts via our City Hall Listens survey; the survey closes January 4, 2017.

You may also be interested in checking out our For The Record webpage, which addresses some questions from residents who have reached out to City Hall for clarification, including questions about the library project.
