Design Development for New Marshfield Library/Community Center
Architects seek design input for Marshfield's new library, community center. (Marshfield News Herald, 9/14/2011)
Excerpt: The architectural firm hired to design Marshfield's new public library and community center will be on hand Thursday to gather public input about the building style and the services people want integrated into it.
The project is slated to break ground in 2014, with an estimated cost of $7.5 million.
"This is the first of a number of events to gather information to help design a new library and community center," said Lori Belongia, library director.
Through earlier community meetings, the city committee leading the project learned that local residents want a space that will meet more needs in the community.
"This was a senior center project, and now it's changed to a community center. It'll still serve the same function as a senior center, but the focus was changed to include the entire community," Belongia said.
The architects, Zimmerman Architectural Studios Inc. of Milwaukee, will show examples of their designs for similar projects.
