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 order for the plan to move forward, Gladstone residents must vote “yes” on a ballot measure to authorize construction of a new library. The measure will be part of May 2018 ballot. This “yes” vote is the first step in planning for the library, and would not result in new taxes for residents.
If residents vote “yes,” this sets the stage for planning the new Gladstone library. A yes vote will allow the city to lease city-owned property for the new library. 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.
If the measure is not approved by voters, the City would have no guarantee of County support in constructing a new library.
