Oh, I so agree! I really hope The Cabin stays put, but I don't think City Hall considered either the structure or the literary center's future when they contracted with the architectural team.

I agree with Kathy Kustra's July 16, 2018 remarks.

The new classroom there has impacted usage of the west side of The Cabin. The Garden with the Rose Beal Tree at the Anne Frank Memorial was found recently to be very close to the new Lubrary building scheme. So the City is moving the new Library footprint back to protect the tree.

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.

Oh my gosh, Diane, that is important information, thank you. I have family in Missoula, MT., one is a librarian. They are also building a new library, there has been some controversy, but the city has included the community in every aspect, including passing a bond vote. A very significant detail is the costs have been locked in for quite a while, I have no doubt Boise is not going to be able to keep cost within the margin they promised.

And it is important to note that the Salt Lake City and Seattle libraries, often touted as similar to Boise's plan, both received a bond levy vote from the citizens, which has been denied to date by our City Hall. By my count, this and the stadium will be the largest taxpayer-funded projects in the City of Boise' history. If we vote for fire stations, foothills preservation, and school bonds, we deserve the right to vote on these extremely large projects.
