While the construction crews are laying the groundwork for the New Home Company's housing project, the City of Larkspur is preparing the foundation for a new library/community center.
An ad hoc committee, co-chaired by Larkspur City Council members Brad Marsh and Ann Morrison, will meet Monday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. at Larkspur City Hall. Tonight's agenda includes discussions of what the facility should be named and just what it should include.
This is the committee's second meeting after it debuted on Oct. 15. Postcards were mailed to Larkspur residents regarding future meeting dates.
The Rose Garden Project will be the site of 85 residential units being developed by the New Home Company on the 16.8-acre former Niven Nursery site. The Rose Garden development will also include "a 2.43-acre community facility site, multi-use paths, landscaped areas, open space areas and creek setback and buffer areas," according to the City of Larkspur website.
The City Council decided in June that the community facility should also include a library, opening the way for the City to accept a matching donation offer of nearly $5 million.
That decision didn't thrill everyone, especially those who'd rather see the library remain in the historic City Hall building. City officials have said they hope residents will join the ad hoc committee discussions to voice their opinions.
