Sno-Isle Libraries is moving forward in our preparations for the new Lake Stevens Library in the Chapel Hill neighborhood.
Beginning March 20, the Chapel Hill property owned by the library district will be cleared. There will be minimal impact to the surrounding community and the natural landscape. The glacial erratic boulders on site will be preserved and incorporated into the site design as a geological interest point.
Northend Excavating was hired for this work and clearing should be completed in seven to ten days. During this time, the two houses and out-buildings will be cleared and all concrete/asphalt and the septic tank will be removed.
Next steps are site design planning with BuildingWork, the architecture firm designing the library.
Sno-Isle Libraries has secured $3.1 million in state grants for construction of a new library with the support of State Sen. John Lovick. The funds have matching requirements, which the library district is committed to secure or provide.
We look forward to celebrating with you at a groundbreaking in the future. You can stay up-to-date on the progress of this project.
