Petition to Save Our 1913 Library
We the undersigned residents of New Canaan, CT petition the Town of New Canaan and its relevant Boards, Councils, Commissions and Committees to perform due diligence concerning the requested additional $5,000,000, and to act upon the directive in New Canaan's Plan of Conservation and Development to "encourage the preservation of historic buildings." This petition does not directly question the New Canaan Library's needs nor their proposed new building design. It asks that the Library include the retention of the original Landmark 1913 Library building as a stand-alone structure in its original, iconic location. The undersigned ask of the Town of New Canaan not to approve town funds towards the destruction of our community's built heritage.
