FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) — A Planning Commission meeting was held to discuss the construction of an addition to the Fayetteville Public Library.
This meeting is the first of three steps in the planning and construction process where vetted designs are presented and discussed before dirt is moved and buildings erected.
“The library has been in the design phase for about a year now since they were approved for their sales tax increase,” said Jonathan Curth, senior planner for the city’s planning division. “That proposal included about a 100,000 square foot addition coming off the southeast corner of the building. They’ve got a lot of interior programming for a cafe, an auditorium and an event space.”
If passed, the addition will be constructed on the nearly five and a half acres already owned by the library.
