2015 City of Appleton Budget Includes $5 Million for Land Acquisition and Architectural Plans

Funding for Appleton library survives council scrutiny.  (Appleton Post-Crescent, 11/12/2014)

Another small step forward.
The approval doesn't mean the proposed $37 million library will be built on a downtown bluff overlooking the Fox River. Rather, it allows the city to continue the process, defined by statute, to acquire the site from Fox Banquets and Trinity Lutheran Church. 

"We're not going to (forcibly) take the property," Hanna said. "It has to be a negotiated transaction."

From a few weeks ago.
