The Baraboo Public Library will unveil conceptual drawings for the building expansion and remodel project in two public “Sneak Peak” sessions at the library on Wednesday, February 20, at 10 AM and at 5:30 PM. The preliminary plans, developed by Ann Dilcher, a LEED accredited architect with Quinn Evans Architects, and Carter Arndt, project architect with MSA Professional Services, will give the public an idea of the library expansion design being considered by decision makers.
“This building is the people’s library,” said library director Jessica Bergin. “We invite the public to come in, take a look at the drawings, and weigh in on how they think features of these preliminary plans will work.”
After the February 20 public viewing and comment sessions, architects will incorporate suggestions and requests that have been gathered from library decision makers and the public to develop one of the conceptual drawings into a schematic design. In April, the draft schematic design will be presented to the public and decision makers for further comment. Based on this input, architects will create a refined schematic design, which will be presented in its final form to the Common Council in May.
