LARKSPUR

Task force kicks off library fundraising

A citizen-led task force has been formed to raise money for a new library and community center in Larkspur.

The Commons at Larkspur is a proposed project on 2.4 acres of city-owned land on Rose Lane.

“It is a very exciting opportunity for our community to create a new gathering place for people, programs and resources to enrich our citizens and grow the sense of Larkspur Village,” Mayor Ann Morrison said in a statement.

The task force is aiming to raise up to $20 million for the project.

The City Council this month agreed to match up to $150,000 toward the project from the city’s general fund.

The Larkspur Library Community Center Foundation (LLCC) Foundation is a citizen-led 501(c)(3) organization, whose purpose is to raise the necessary funds, and collaborate with the City of Larkspur to construct the Commons at Larkspur and the new Larkspur Library Community Center on the City’s vacant land at Rose Lane and Doherty Drive.  The LLCC Foundation was founded in May 2018.
