In our previous report on the update on the St. Ursula property, we informed the community that the Library Board was in negotiations to try to come to terms on an acquisition price for the St. Ursula property. At this time, we would like to report that we do finally have terms agreed upon for $3,650,000 and will be moving forward with a Public Referendum Vote asking for your approval to acquire and renovate this property into your new and improved community library facility.
In our previous report on the update on the St. Ursula Property, we informed the community that the SEQRA report was finalized and an appraisal was completed for the Library. As this newsletter goes to print, the board continues negotiations with the sellers working to pursue a suitable price for the property.
Since our last update, the Library Board authorized a property appraisal of the St. Ursula Property as well as for the current library location. The Board also authorized the hiring of a company to perform an environmental review of the St. Ursula Property, known as SEQRA, for public municipalities.
At the January 10 Board of Trustee’s meeting, BBS, the libraries’ architects, released their final report to the library board. As a reminder, BBS was charged with exploring and comparing our current library with the potential of the St. Ursula Center being made into a library.
