Measure S: Renovation, not relocation of library

Letter to the SC Sentinel, 6/19/2022


We know the Santa Cruz Library needs renovation. Measure S passed in 2016 just for that purpose - renovation, not a new library on Lot 4.


You just need to go online to ourdowntownourfuture.org/library- renovation to see Jayson Architecture’s stunning renovation design. All the shortcomings are brought up to modern standards.


The advantages of a renovation are as follows: Keeps the library in the downtown civic center area, gives us a fiscally responsible state of the art public library, eliminates the unnecessary building of a 300+ space parking structure, preserves our Lot 4 for use as a future downtown commons, keeps Lot 7 as a possible future low income housing area with more units than multi-use project will provide, keeps the farmers market at its present location, and saves all the heritage trees on Church Street.
