Below is the Site Plan created by Keith E Simpson Associates Inc of New Canaan.
It indicates the original 1913 building as well as the 1936 children's room addition and small 1952 Cherry Street addition. As shown, there is more than 70 feet between between the new and original library building. That's more than twice the amount of set backs New Canaan now requires for street setbacks, which is 30 feet.
Did you know that the Town Green site work is estimated at well over $1,000,000? Keeping our original 1913 library will greatly reduce those site expenses. The green space will be reduced, but could be used by both buildings.
