Forward progress on the Library Commons project is awaiting finalization of an agreement between the City and the County regarding the site location at 208 Kincaid St. The County owns that plot of land and has agreed in earlier meetings to transfer the site to the City, however the final paperwork has not been executed. This needs to be complete before geotechnical work on the site can begin.
There have been some renderings of what the combined parking structure and library might look like and how it would be situated on the 208 Kincaid St lot that you can view on the City of Mount Vernon Website Here. The geotechnical survey is important because it will determine the extent the foundation will have to go to assure the new facility meets all earthquake standards.
