The design process for the new public library kicked off in July with the citizen design committee. The process, led by design consultants PGAL and Ten Eyck Landscape Architects, will include multiple opportunities for public input.
Funding for the new library, to be located adjacent to a new signature park near Uptown Boulevard and Pioneer Trail, was approved by voters in the 2017 bond election. PGAL and Ten Eyck architects were selected as the design team for the project following a public Request for Qualifications and extensive evaluation process. Both PGAL and Ten Eyck have a wealth of experience designing municipal projects, including the City of Seguin Public Library, City of Allen Public Library and Civic Auditorium, and the San Antonio Botanical Garden.
