The Fayetteville Public Library could soon grow by nearly 100,000 square feet.
The design was approved last night at a planning meeting and is the first step of three before leveling and construction.
The library has been in the design phase for about a year since approval for a sales tax increase was passed in 2017.
“All in all, the three variances were approved unanimously by the planning commission and we feel in a way you feel satisfied when your design finally passes muster with the planning commission,” said David Johnson,
executive director of the Fayetteville Public Library.
The next step is final approval before the City Council.
Groundbreaking is expected at the beginning of March.
