Plans move forward for new library

Last night the Carson City Supervisors voted 4-1 to move forward on the plans for the Nugget Economic Development Project which includes a new state-of-the-art library located downtown in the 8 acre area surrounding the Nugget. The library is planned to be built with a business and technology incubator and next to a "digital" lab all designed to support business and get Carson City back to work.

Local media covered last night's meeting in detail and their articles can be found here:

Next steps in the Nugget Economic Development Project

The next meeting that will determine the future for this project is Thursday, December 10, @ 6:00 p.m. in the Sierra Room of the Community Center. People are excited- the story has been in newspapers as far away as Charleston, West Virgina. Come show suppport, ask questions, and learn how the "public" side of the project could be funded.

This is not a dream but a very real path to not only a new library- aka- "Knowledge Center" but to the revitalization and the future of Carson City.
