For more information about the Library Plan, please contact the planning team at email@example.com.
As part of the agreement between the city of Gladstone and Clackamas County—Gladstone is moving forward with a process to construct a new library. It is expected that the library would be constructed on city-owned land in downtown Gladstone. There are still many details that need to be worked out, as well as a formal process and a City-wide vote to the make the new library a reality.
In May 2018, Gladstone residents approved a plan for a new library through Ballot Measure 3-530. The measure permits the City to lease the Gladstone City Hall property to Clackamas County as the site for a new library of approximately 6,000 square feet. The City Hall will relocate to 18505 Portland Avenue. The County will construct the library using accumulated Library District reserves and a future revenue bond.
The City of Gladstone and Clackamas County will work together to involve residents in conversations on their vision for the library. This vision will help decide the location, services, and features of the library. Library construction would happen after the planning process is complete.
