While plans for the new library hinge on wrapping up land negotiations, we are still refining what the new library should look like. In December, the Nampa Development Commission hired Modus Architecture of Boise to make a site plan with conceptual elevation drawings. These drawings will show the traffic pattern and help us refine the look and feel for the block, which will include retail and office space, as well as public meeting space. The City of Nampa has engaged Carter and Burgess of Dallas, Texas, to conduct a thorough downtown traffic study. For that firm to do its work, we need a site plan for the library, showing how traffic will enter and leave the place. The library is planned for one city block downtown, with an onsite parking garage attached.
