PROPOSAL AND CASE FOR SUPPORT FOR A NEW LIBRARY AND COMMUNITY CENTER (with downtown parking)

The Mount Vernon City Library and Mount Vernon Senior Center propose to build a new 27,000-30,000 square foot facility on the site directly across the street from the County Courthouse. This location is made possible because of an outstanding interlocal agreement between the City of Mount Vernon and Skagit County. This site allows for increased visibility, easier access, and downtown infrastructure support. We hope this project will be a catalyst for downtown development (as feasibility studies and the downtown master plan indicate) while better supporting the learning needs of our community.
