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 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.
