Cleveland City Council Advances on Construction of $4M Library Branch
By Robert Higgs, cleveland.com
A City Council panel took initial steps Tuesday to clear the way for construction of a Cleveland Public Library branch in Hough.
The council’s Development, Planning and Sustainability Committee gave its approval to legislation that would vacate an alley, East 66th Place, that runs through the proposed library site on Lexington Avenue.
The library plans to build a branch on Lexington at East 66th Street cattycorner to League Park. It would replace a branch on Crawford Road that library officials have described as aging, outmoded and not worth revamping.
The $4-million project is expected to be completed in spring 2022.
