Governor Linda Lingle has released $500,000 to design and construct the expansion of Mililani Public Library‘s parking lot, improve the safety of its vehicle entrance and exit onto Makaimoimo Street and perform related site improvements.
In the nearly 25 years since the Mililani Public Library was built, the Mililani area has grown considerably, with a sizeable increase in housing and the addition of a major shopping center, theaters and a bus transit center. This has led to an increase in use of the library and made the current number of parking stalls inadequate.
“Public libraries are important learning centers within our state. They offer families access to valuable reading and multimedia resources and also enhance our sense of community,” said Governor Lingle. “This project will expand and improve the Mililani Public Library to accommodate the increase in use that has occurred over the past two decades.”
Design is scheduled to begin in October 2008 and be completed in April 2009. Construction is scheduled to begin in September 2009 and be completed in April 2010.
