Cottage Grove rejects library; Fitchburg unsure

Sadly for Cottage Grove residents,
tomorrow is another day.

Link to November 6 Wisconsin State Journal article.

The Cottage Grove proposal was for an 18,000-square-foot library that would cost just over $7 million. It was to be built on fives acres of land purchased by the Cottage Grove Community Library Board. (Website includes PowerPoint presentation promoting the library project.)

55% of Fitchburg voters supported a proposal to allow the City of borrow $10,000,000 for a 37,000 square foot library facility, to be located at the corner of Lacy Road and Research Park Drive. In a separate referendum question, only 48% of voters apporved a $965,000 in the city's annual levy for the library's annual operating costs.
