Library Subcommittee

As stated in the Career Center Working Group Charge

Convene a subgroup of CCWG members to evaluate options for the Columbia Pike Library, including staying on the site in coordination with school facilities or alternatively moving it from the site to a location on Columbia Pike in support of economic development and place making.  Cost estimates developed as part of the CCWG process should reflect library relocation and reconstruction costs for any option.  The subgroup, which will be led by a member of the CCWG but may include additional Columbia Pike and Libraries stakeholders, will work in parallel to the CCWG and any recommendations will be part of the CCWG report.
