New Pleasant Hill Library Design Underway
With the passage of Measure K in November 2016, the city has been active in laying the groundwork for the construction of the new library as well as planning for funding public infrastructure projects around Pleasant Hill. 

In November and December, the city’s architect, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson (BCJ), held a series of focus groups and a large town hall meeting with community members and stakeholders. These meetings focused on programming and space usage for the new library.

A second town hall meeting is scheduled to take place at the PH Community Center on Tuesday, January 23, at 7pm.
