The District tax went in to effect April 1, 2016.

The program includes a new joint library and recreation facility, as well as a new police station with IT/HR, and a new fire station.

Estimated costs are $157-173 million and include costs to acquire land needed for these projects, as well as parking.

Project includes:

Buildings will be built as follows:

Services during construction will not change.

Services following construction of each facility will improve and increase customer services, as well as response times resulting from significant upgrades and improvements to technology and equipment for each facility.

City uses in the MSB will relocate to the new Community Civic Campus facilities once built, and the MSB will be demolished with the land made available for mixed-use development.

Programming at the MSB site will continue while the new project is in construction.

All existing programs, plus new programming would move to the new building and be available when the facility opens in mid-late 2021*.
