Northern District project preview: Mount Vernon Library CommonsAdd to Calendar
Please join AGC, Mount Vernon mayor Jill Boudreau and the team from OAC for coffee as they preview the Mount Vernon Library Commons project that is set to go to bid in late July.
The Mount Vernon Library Commons project is a multi-use infrastructure project located in historic downtown Mount Vernon, and represents the largest public project the City has ever taken on. Combining several community needs, this project is a catalyst for economic development in the Cascadia Innovation Corridor along the Interstate 5 corridor between Seattle and Vancouver, BC, and represents a $54 million investment in the local economy.
This project includes approximately 32,000 s.f. of public library services, a commercial kitchen space, community center space and three levels of structured parking with 75 EV charging stations, a PV solar array, a park-and-ride and transit stop.
As an equitable anchor institution of any modern city and region, the Library Commons is well-positioned to extend its role as a critical community connector, offering a place for seniors to gather, an early-learning hub, access to digital literacy, new business incubation, employee training and the necessary tools that strengthen democracy by addressing knowledge gaps.
Join us at Skagit Station - 105 East Kincaid Street in Mount Vernon. Free to AGC members. Seating is limited -- register today.
