Physical Plant Assessment

Earlier this year, the Board of the New City Library retained Parish Property Management to conduct a comprehensive physical plant assessment of the New City Library.  This assessment reviews the condition of the roof, exterior walls, HVAC and Electrical systems as well as the exterior of the facility (sidewalks and parking lot).  The purpose of the assessment is to have a non partisan, professional review of the Library and advise the Board of what actions are needed as well as a priority lisitng.  The Board wants to share the contents of this report with the community.

Early next year the Board will address the issues raised in this report and develop a plan of action.
