Mead Library addition for Sheboygan City Hall suggested.  (Sheboygan Press, 8/5/2015)
Occupying the library has long been a sore spot for locals who have concerns the city would displace key parts of operations there, something the report also notes. However, it also notes there is an outdoor plaza east of the building that could be used for an addition to house city hall and said it could be a larger part of revitalization of the downtown area.

“Placing an addition onto the Mead Public Library would enhance a currently underutilized public space (non-taxable, i.e. plaza next to library) and convert it into a welcoming presence available for use in all seasons and weather conditions,” the report said. “This space would accommodate a larger service counter for citizens to receive permits, or other City Hall transactions.”
