Anythink hosts master plan meeting in Reunion
Anythink is hosting a community meeting at the Bison Ridge Recreation Center on Tuesday, Oct. 8, to share information about its current master plan and the potential new library planned for the Reunion Center. Residents will hear from library leadership, the architects working on the master plan project and representatives from Oakwood Homes. The meeting will be held from 6-8 pm, and light refreshments will be served.
For the past year, Ratio | HPA out of Denver and HBM Architects out of Cleveland, Ohio, have been working with the library on a master plan project that includes an audit of the library’s existing seven branches and the potential of two new libraries, slotted for Thornton and Commerce City. The work began by hosting roundtable discussions with stakeholders and residents to examine what a 21st century library looks like. The culmination of this work lead to “Catalyst for Innovation: The Anythink Visioning Sessions,” which has helped provide direction for the library’s master plan.
Anythink has been in discussions with Oakwood Homes in Reunion on the potential of incorporating a library into its planned Reunion Center, a 430-acre mixed-use development on the eastern edge of the master-planned community in Commerce City. The building of this library is dependent on additional funding for the library system. On Wednesday, August 21, the Anythink Board of Trustees voted to refer a ballot measure this November for additional funding for Anythink.
Community members are invited to attend the meeting to hear about the master plan work and provide feedback to the library, architects and partners.
