Townhall meetings scheduled for library site optionsPublished by on
WORTHINGTON – A series of townhall meetings to inform Nobles County residents of library site options is scheduled for July 22 and 23 in Adrian and Worthington. Executive Director Julie Wellnitz is working with the architectural firm to produce a series of informational boards and a short presentation regarding site analysis to be used at the meetings and display during the Nobles County Fair.
The first meeting is tentatively set to begin at 6 p.m. Monday, July 22 at the Adrian Elementary School. Initially it was planned to be at the Adrian City Hall for one hour before an Adrian Council Meeting, but commissioners decided during a work session today that might not give residents enough time to study the plans and ask questions.
On Tuesday, July 23, the boards will be on display immediately following a Nobles County Commissioners meeting in the Government Center Commissioners Room, right around 11 a.m. At 6 p.m. that evening, the boards and presentation will be in the Farmer’s Room of the Government Center.
After a brief presentation, the meeting will continue in an open house style, allowing those in attendance to study the pros and cons of each site and use a sticky note to indicate their preference or add a comment.
The four sites in consideration are the old Campbell Soup site, the Lampert Yard site, the Nobles County Public Works site and the site of the old outdoor pool. The presentation and boards will offer criteria used for land consideration and approximate costs for site acquisition and preparation.
