Nampa Idaho Get's New Library

Real Estate Agent with Silvercreek Realty Group

Last night in a 3 to 1 vote Nampa Idaho city council took a bold step to pave the way for a much needed library in downtown Nampa.  Bold in that the funds will be taken out of the city's reseve temporarily while the court decide if the city's urban renewal district will be able to go ahead and bond for $15.5million to fund the project.  The bond money would replace the reserve funds.  The monies approved last night will allow the city to move ahead and purchase the land now.

Location of the new library has been kept a secret while negotiations for the land went on.  The city block between 3rd and 4th streets south and between 11th and 10th Avenues south is the property in question.

This is just the beginning of the city's commitment to revitalize the downtown area.  This move is expected to improve values of the downtown Nampa Idaho real estate.

Great blog, Ed.  I'm in support of the efforts of the Downtown development efforts.  Having lived in Cities where the development has opened the doors for tremendous opportunity and attraction for new business and community involvement....this step, by Nampa, is definately in the right direction.  What's up with the Safety Building?


Have a great new year!  2009's gonna be a great one!!!  Robin
