The city’s much anticipated new central library project isn’t likely to break ground in 2012, the facility’s centennial year.
The city is still hashing out some of the conceptual planning for the new facility, whose price tag is pegged at up to $250 million.
Anything other than a symbolic groundbreaking in 2012 would be “optimistic,” said Ald. Druh Farrell, who sits on the Calgary Public Library board.
“It would be wonderful if we could break ground in the centennial year, but we don’t want to rush it,” Farrell said.
