At its regularly scheduled meeting, Thursday, June 17, the Library Commission voted on the Colfax and Irving (Avondale) site as the preferred site for the new Westside Library. It will become the selected site upon final negotiation of sales terms and approval of a purchase contract by the City and the property owner.
The Commission arrived at this decision after an extensive review process, including discussions with the community, and considering -- among other issues -- accessibility to the most number of Denver residents, with a focus on children. Additional criteria included parking, land price, bus access, light rail access, total population within one mile and site size.
