Update/Discussion on the City of Flagstaff Downtown Library ADA Entrance Project
STAFF RECOMMENDED ACTION:
This item is for discussion only (see attached presentation).
The Library Entrance ADA project will replace the current non-ADA compliant library entrance and plaza at the Downtown Flagstaff City-Coconino County Public Library with a new ADA compliant entrance including ramps/sidewalks and plaza. The project team has developed numerous conceptual ramp designs, engaged in a robust stakeholder and public outreach effort, and incorporated this feedback to create the conceptual designs now presented for consideration. Close coordination with the Commission on Inclusion and Adaptive Living and striving to achieve Universal Design goals, which include creating spaces and resources that can be used equitably by all, regardless of their ability, has been a guiding light.
On December 1, 2020, City Council approved a contract, in the amount of $75,000, for a public art component in relation to this project with Jones Studio. The artist, Maria Salenger, has been incorporated as an important member of the design team and has prepared preliminary art concepts that have been vetted by focus groups and the Beautification and Public Arts Commission (BPAC).
This project is in the conceptual design phase and it has been identified that there are existing conduits and fiber connections to the Library, however we will continue to coordinate with the Information Technology Team as we finalize the design to ensure the fiber optic system is compatible with future needs.
The current project budget includes $370,000 in FY 21 funding from Bed, Board and Beverage (BBB) revenues and new FY 22 monies in the amount of $150,000 in additional BBB funds and $100,000 in Library funding. Additionally, $75,000 in FY 21 funding from BBB was authorized for the inclusion of public art within the project.
