Supporters of $19M Santa Clara library in uproar after city orders construction halt

“Supporters of a $19.2 million library project in the city of Santa Clara are upset the city has halted construction after Santa Clara County won a court order freezing the city’s former redevelopment assets. Santa Clara’s planned Northside Library, at 695 Moreland Way, is “99.9 percent completed” and was to open Dec. 6, said Maria Daane, executive director of the nonprofit Santa Clara City Library Foundation and Friends. Construction began on the 15,000-square-foot building in July 2012 and so far the foundation, which was developing it with the city, has spent $11 million of $19.2 million the city set aside for it, Daane said.” (via San Jose Mercury News)
