CAMP HILL — Camp Hill Borough Council approved a plan designed by H. Edward Black Engineering to increase parking at the Cleve J. Fredricksen Library at Wednesday night’s meeting.
Two separate lots will be merged into one to provide for approximately 30 additional spaces.
“It’s a busy library,” said Director Bonnie Goble. “One of the objections from the neighbors is that there is too much on-street parking when the library has a big event, so we wanted to answer the residents’ concerns. It will enable us to support our expanded activity and now we can better meet the demand,” she said.
“We’re very happy with it because we think it will help the community. It also helps the staff to have good, safe parking and so it’s just positive all around,” board president Janice Bolton said.
As for financing, Bolton said the library “wanted to make sure the plan was approved first and we’ll be discussing financing at a later date.”
Officials said work will begin in spring of next year at the latest.
