  20. 20. Library Planning and Building Committee Grant Reimbursement • MPLCP Grant will pay for approximately 45% of eligible project costs • Grafton would receive $6,600,000 from MPLCP Grant
  21. 21. Library Planning and Building Committee Town costs Project cost $16,597,997 Less grant - $ 6,600,000 Town cost $10,000,000 Cost to average homeowner = $111/year < $10/month *Ave house = $359,000
  22. 22. Library Planning and Building Committee Other Opportunities to Reduce Costs *$250,000 pledges to date LEED certification $ 165,000 Perrault Land Reimbursement $ 50,000 GPL Capital Campaign* $ 800,000 Utility Rebate $ 75,000 CIPC Funds (self checkout system) $ 77,000 Other? __________ Potential additional savings $1,167,000
  23. 23. Library Planning and Building Committee Library Expansion Options • Do Nothing Cost: Escalating M&O costs (ADA requirements, IT system upgrades, windows, mechanical and electrical systems repairs, etc) Impact: Library Quality continues to deteriorate • Build A Smaller Expansion (i.e. 15,000 sf) Cost $10.1M Impact: No MPLCP grant, Town Pays Entire Cost. • Build Proposed Expansion Cost: $10M Impact: Fully Functional Library Now
  24. 24. Library Planning and Building Committee Project Summary Why should Grafton expand and renovate the existing Library? • We need an upgraded Library; the quality of the existing Library is poor at best • The design for the new Library is more efficient and better aesthetically than previous designs • It makes sense financially to expand the Library now if we receive the MPLCP grant.
  25. 25. Library Planning and Building Committee Financial Realities • A $16.6M expanded Library for $10M is the best option the Town can choose. • If Grafton rejects the MPLCP grant, the $6.6M will just be awarded to another Town to expand/build their Library • If Grafton chooses not to expand Library now, it will only cost significantly more later. Year Project Size Project Cost Town Cost 2011 29,441 sf $ 11.7M $ 6.6M 2017 25,987 sf $ 16.6M $ 10.0M
