Plan with Columbus Street Extension

This rendering is the latest proposal by the City of Grove City regarding the new library site. The plan involves the realignment of Columbus Street with Mill Street. This proposal was first presented to the Library Board on Tuesday evening, August 12. The Board has scheduled a special meeting for Tuesday, August 19 at 7:30 at the Grove City Library in the basement meeting room to discuss the matter further. We are awaiting a site plan from our architects Braun & Steidl.

The SPL Board has not made a decision on this plan and won't until more information is obtained and more discussions are held with the City of Grove City and our architects. The red dotted lines indicate the route for a possible future street into a future Beulah Park development.
