On another path, I was driving by the area this week and was reminded that the Anne Frank Memorial is right beside The Cabin. I don't remember seeing comments about Anne Frank - have there been any? Is that memorial being affected by the new library.

$11,185,236 Let that number sink in. $11,185,236 that was buried in a consent item of a nearly 2000 page agenda packet. $11,185,236 is the amount that Boise City Council just approved for Safdie to continue with architectural services on the proposed $103 million library campus. We are reeling in an affordable housing crisis. We are not flush with cash. We do not have the funding for this project just sitting around. Consider this in another perspective. The City is currently contemplating setting up a Land Trust with $20 million - $10 million from City resources, $10 million from philanthropy. While they think about moves like this to address affordable housing, they move full steam ahead on an amenity project by approving an $11.1 million expenditure for architectural plans. Oh, plus a minimum $650,000 to move a historically registered building (The Cabin) to a new site to make way for river views. Shame on you, City of Boise. Shame on you, Mayor Dave Bieter. Shame, shame on you, Council members Lisa E. Sánchez, Lauren McLean, TJ Thomson, Elaine M Clegg, Holli Woodings, Scott Ludwig.

There is already a beautiful event center located in Barber Park, with lots of parking - it goes unused most of the time.

While it's a beautiful design I think it is way too costly and impractical for a city the size of Boise. I think we should spend less on outside design and more on improving the parking situation. I like and agree with the addition of branches, which also helps with the parking problem downtown.
