The taxpayers paid $12 million for the new Crown Point library, and they got their money's worth. It is a wonderful place to visit.
But I don’t understand the parking situation. On a recent Saturday morning, after a snowstorm, I went to the library, about 11 a.m.. Nothing had been touched.
When I complained about lack of snow removal, I was told the parking lot did not belong to the library. There never was a parking lot for the building.
Do I keep reading in the paper about requests for building permits having to have enough parking places? The city used to have to park behind the fire station, but now it’s this lot, so of course the “non library” lot is usually full.
How can we expect mothers with young children or the elderly to use the $12 million library when there are no parking facilities?
