The library is one component of a project proposed for 15 acres at the intersection of Oak Park Boulevard and Monticello Avenue, currently referred to as "Oak Park Properties". Oak Park Properties comprises two projects, a Civic Project and a Residential Project.
The Civic Project, at 1700 Oak Park Boulevard, includes construction of a new library building, a park with athletic fields, improvements to the Grayson Creek corridor, and significant improvements to Monticello Avenue and Oak Park Boulevard.
The Residential Project, at 1750 Oak Park Boulevard, includes demolition of the existing County-owned library building and vacant administrative offices, and construction of 34 single-family homes, 7 accessory dwelling units, and a new pocket park.
Construction on the new library building is expected to begin in 2020 with anticipated completion in late 2021. (Rendering above is the view of the library entrance.)
