This project would provide the Silver Spring community with a new library located within the CBD. The new library will be approximately 34,000 square feet in size and is intended to meet the unique requirements of an increasingly urban, ethnically and culturally diverse residential and business community. A site selection committee was formed in January of 2001 to recommend a potential site that meets an established set of criteria. The CIP includes planning and construction money for this project. Montgomery County has prepared an RFP to solicit interest from developers interested in constructing a residential project over a future library. The State has also expressed an interest in incorporating a Purple Line station into this project.
