Thank you. I am also very tired of the city's intentionally misleading comments that do not typically address the posted concern, and add only positives to the city's position. I feel steamrolled by those City responses.

I was at that meeting November 27, 2018. There was no “review” or “careful consideration” of those 322 comments. City staff just mentioned it, —and mentioned that 60% of the commenters wanted the cabin to stay in its current location. The Council spent more time discussing the depth of the sewer line near one of the proposed locations in Julia Davis Park than they ever did discussing those comments. In fact, there was absolutely no discussion of the comments. I’m very tired of the city selectively advising the public of information that supports the Mayor and Council’s decisions which don’t reflect a large majority of the opinions submitted to the city by the public. It is a misrepresentation of the facts.

Why did the mayor and council sign a long term 45-year lease with Rocky Mountain Development (sub lease to Biomart) on the adjacent city property purchased in 2002 for 1.5 million for library expansion? This 1.3-acre site was selected by CCDC in 2004 as a location for a parking garage. Then in 2011, without the support of the Library Board, the city undertook a long-term lease that locks up the site for 60 years with options. Imagine if the architect had this city land in play there would have been room to keep the CABIN in place and create city owned parking to serve the public.

Boise isn't just downtown. We need libraries in West Boise. Where is the outreach for the other Boise residents?

I agree with M. Thomas about the city reading all the comments. I'm still waiting for a single reply to any of the points I've raised. They only reply when they have a pat answer they feel makes them look good. Real "additional comments and questions" are ignored.

I agree completely with Bonnie Zimmerman's comments on Nov. 20. The proposed library is too big and too expensive. Smaller amounts of money should be spent on branch libraries like Bown or Cole and Ustick, which have better access and lots of free parking.
