On July 11th we presented this petition to Mayor McLean, City Council Members, and Library Director Jessica Dorr. The petition has also been shared with the Boise Library Board of Trustees.
I believe that city leadership reacted very positively to this request and understands the gap. The conversation moved towards how do we get this done, when will the library master plan be complete, what questions will it focus on answering.
Even though the first 835 petition signers were presented on July 11th, I see no reason to close the petition until we have money committed and a place designated. More signers, more comments, will only help strengthen this initiative.
Boise Dev wrote a nice article covering the meeting last night titled Calls for West Boise library dominate Boise budget public hearing.
