Ocean Park, more building news: we approved underwriting the completion of the Ocean Park library. The folks down there are jump starting a fundraising campaign, and the Ocean Park Friends of the Library are committed to raising $125,000.
The project itself would double the 3,200 square foot library and cost $500,000 total. With local fundraising and federal grant help, we’re hopeful the district contribution is minimal. Because Ocean Park is unincorporated, Timberland is the sole provider of library facilities.
We also now have an architect working on the Ocean Park expansion, finishing the entire design of the project.
