Current branches in Group 3: • West Park • Eastman • Hough • Union • Walz
  7. 7. Community Vision Plan A report will be produced for each group with recommendations tailored to each branch, which may include: • Exterior architectural renovations • Concepts for reprogramming interior spaces • Outdoor site improvements • Framework for prioritizing library services • Streetscape enhancements • Creative ideas for bridging the digital divide • Partnerships with community organizations
  8. 8. Community Vision Plan Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) • The Library does not have a future plan for the Hough Branch building. This Community Vision Plan is the public engagement process to create a plan. • There is no budget set for the Hough Branch recommendations. The library wants to know what the community needs are first, then plan financial investments accordingly. • The definition of "21st Century Library" will be co-created by each branch community. The Cleveland Public Library recognizes each community has different needs and priorities.
