At last, we are getting a much-needed new library. But is the location in the center of town really the best selection? The city already has suitable land at Oak Hill. Why does it need to be in the center of town? Nearly every citizen who uses the library has a means to get to Brothers Market. The new walking trail is not far from Oak Hill and could be expanded.

Like other towns in the area, we are extremely short of recreational facilities, both outdoor and indoor, basketball, volley ball, tennis, pickle ball and hand ball. Interest rates are still low. There are grants for some of this, such as the NTA. It may be the right time for the city to make a big move. Build a new city hall complex at Oak Hill, combining it with the library, which will have meeting rooms that can be utilized for city meetings.
