Press Release on announcement of PPP
Ward 3 Vision and Coaliton for Smarter Growth

On July 10, 2008 the Mayor announced a plan to move forward with a private public partnership for the Tenley Library and selected LCOR as the developing partner. This project is a unique chance to leverage the value of the public land and private resources to gain needed community amenities.  We urge the city to provide for meaningful public engagement so we can achieve the best library, school renovations, affordable housing, and the preservation of green space.  This is a great opportunity to create to a more vibrant Tenleytown.

Visit the Deputy Mayor’s Office of Planning and Economic Development to see an early version of the LCOR project. And check back with us to see what you can do to support a mixed use library that truly benefits our community.
