Miami Springs Library Renovation Project Not Going Well
Link to May 10 Miami Herald article, "Miami Springs Branch library renovation overdue, needs builder to finish".
Excerpt: Those waiting for a newly renovated Miami Springs Branch Library will have to wait a little longer.
The library's original location at 401 Westward Dr. began undergoing renovations in April 2007. Since then, the library has been housed at its temporary location at 700 South Royal Poinciana Blvd.
But construction, which was expected to be completed within two years, came to a halt in October.
The reason: The contractor was removed from the project because ``of poor performance and not moving the project along in a timely manner,'' said Victoria Galan, public affairs manager for the Miami-Dade Public Library System.
