Citizen Claims "Library being held hostage"

To All COLA LO Members,

Last week a citizen published an article in the Review claiming that the library is being held hostage to both foothills and streetcar development under the city's plans for redevelopment.   The article can be found at: Ransom our library

The article states: 

"Since there’s more than enough TIF to fully construct the library, every additional dollar simply shifts another dollar to lower priority, less voter-friendly items on the city’s wish list. This G-O bond scheme would ransom our library for streetcar and Foothills. It’s a slap in the face to people who have worked so long to bring us a new library and salt in the wound to WEB backers."

It presents an interesting position shared by many residents who are deeply concerned over spending and debt in the city.  

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
