Kay Johnson, associate director of Facilities, said KCLS was very pleased to get approval of its site plan and conditional use permit, and was now completing the permitting process and preparing the information to call for bids on July 27. The project information will be published on the KCLS website (www.kcls.org), as well as at Builders Exchange and in other local publications.
Johnson anticipated a late August bid opening, and was hopeful that the winning contractor would break ground in the early fall.
The new Duvall Library, budgeted at about $4.3 million, will be located at the corner of Stephens Street and Main Street.
The final design features a "folded" green roof, a façade of weathered wood and metal designed in three different sections, a shared courtyard with The Duvall Church on the north end of the block, and an elevator.
