Excitement was in the air as Terry Brown and Kelsey Gates of Zervas Architects  unveiled new design drawings to 43 community members at the BP Heron Center.

The design was given full support by the audience in attendance because it so beautifully captures the look and feel of the existing house. Valuable input was provided and will be incorporated into the final design. The next step is to begin the cost estimating process.

Birch Bay Library Community Input Meeting

The smoky atmosphere from nearby forest fires didn’t deter the 46 people who gathered on the lawn at the library site for the third and final Birch Bay Library Community Input Session on Saturday August 18.

Zervas Architect Terry Brown brought initial concept drawings that utilized the community input from the first two sessions. Everyone was energized by the vision of the new library as they walked through the existing house on the site. (Download PDF of concept drawings here)

Hands rearranging items on a map of the Birch Bay Library

It was a great night with 35 people who all rolled up their sleeves to develop design concepts together. We came up with 15 creative design concepts that the architect will review and further develop. Join us for the third and final community input session on August 18, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  This meeting will be held on the front lawn of the Birch Bay Library site at 7968 Birch Bay Drive.

Our gratitude goes to the 65+ community members who attended the first of our three Birch Bay Library Community Input Sessions last night at the BP Heron Center. It was gratifying to see such a large turnout. We were glad to have an opportunity to provide details about the Birch Bay Library project and even more so to hear your opinions and thoughts about developing a library design for the Birch Bay Vogt Community Library.
