CITY OF TULARE – PUBLIC LIBRARY AND COUNCIL CHAMBERS
LOCATION: Tulare, CA
SERVICES: A / CA
A civic heart for Tulare
We love this project for so many reasons, but here are just a few. The combination public library, café, and City Council chambers has brought a new sense of civic pride to its neighborhood; it sits at one of the busiest intersections in a revitalization area and will serve as a catalyst for future development there; it received LEED Silver certification for sustainable elements like energy efficiency, reduced water use, and the use of recycled materials; last but definitely not least, the project promotes alternative modes of transport, with bicycle storage, preferred parking for carpools and vanpools, and a direct pedestrian link to the Tulare Transit Express Center.
