For the first time the conceptual plans for the newly designed Library & Events Center will be presented to the general public during a Special City Commission meeting.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Rachel D. Murrah Civic Center on West Morse Blvd.

Led by internationally-renowned British architect Sir David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates, the design development of the new Library & Events Center has been in the works since the most recent meeting for the building back in June – where locals gave input on what they'd like to see in regards to the building.

Among the multiple meetings held, the design architect team received input from various community boards in the city – including city staff and art & cultural entities – and cultural centers in the city, such as the Cornell Fine Arts Museum and the Winter Park Public Library. Feedback from over 200 locals in Winter Park also shared their thoughts.

For the upcoming meeting on Nov. 1, Winter Parkers who come out will not only be able to see the plans for newly designed Library & Events Center, but they will also get a behind-the-scenes look at the process for its design as well. Locals will also be given a chance to provide feedback to the design architect team on the things they do and do not like.
