Rockport invites public to review library plans
ROCKPORT —Citizens are invited to review the preliminary plans for the new Rockport Public Library on Monday, February 26, at 6:30 p.m. at the Rockport Opera House. This joint workshop of the Select Board and Library Committee will feature large drawings of all aspects of the plan, including the proposed floor plans, exterior design, site design, parking and proposed changes to the road intersections. Attendees will have a chance to examine the plans prior to the start of the formal presentation at 7 p.m. Members of the design, engineering and landscape teams will be on hand to answer questions, as well.
During the formal presentation portion of the workshop, comment from the public will be welcome, and in fact encouraged. Note that this workshop is particularly important because the project is now at the phase where design changes can be made based on public input. The final plan will be placed before voters at the Town Meeting on June 12, and the goal is to present a plan that best meets the needs and wishes of the residents.
