On November 4, 2020 the Larkspur City Council voted 5 to 0 to enter into a Letter of Intent between the City of Larkspur and The Commons Foundation (TCF) to build a $5 Million Library building at Rose Lane.
TCF has 24 months to raise $5 Million in cash. The City will then go out for bids to design and build a $5 Million, 5,000 Square Foot building which can serve the dual purpose of being the new library and a community meeting space. It is intended to be the first phase in a multi-phased approach to building a library and community center at Rose Lane.
38 emails were received by the City Clerk regarding the resolution: 35 in favor including 5 with traffic, parking and street maintenance recommendations for the City, and 3 were opposed.
