Libraries for the 21st Century: Capital Facilities Plan 2007-2025

BERK managed an update of the Library District’s Capital Facilities Plan, which included stakeholder outreach and facilitation, demographic analysis, report design and writing, and presentation to the Board of Trustees. We assisted the District in forming a new stakeholder group—the Sno-Isle Libraries Capital Facilities Planning Advisory Board—and designed and facilitated the Advisory Board’s meetings.

Working collaboratively with staff, we synthesized community, staff, and Advisory Board feedback and analyzed inputs population projections and other inputs to the Plan. The Final Plan included a summary of contextual findings; population and usage trends; clear District policies and goals to guide capital decision-making; a summary of facility needs; and a funding and implementation plan for the identified capital improvements.
