Presentation of draft design and construction agreement with Fairfax County for public parking to be incorporated into redevelopment of Patrick Henry Library

Body

EXPLANATION AND SUMMARY

 

In 2019, the Town of Vienna and Fairfax County partnered on a feasibility study, completed by Grimm and Parker Architects, for redevelopment of Patrick Henry Library (located at 101 Maple Avenue E) and the addition of structured public parking spaces. The feasibility study was presented to Town Council in August 2019 and included two options for adding public parking to a new library, in addition to the 125 parking spaces to be provided for library use. One option included 84 public parking spaces; the other included 188 public parking spaces.

 

Since the conclusion of the feasibility study, the Town has worked with Fairfax County to draft an agreement to proceed with a facility in which the Town would contribute funds to 1) design and 2) construct public parking spaces. The agreement outlines the process for design and construction of a library/public parking garage facility as well as when the Town will be required to submit payments to the county. The agreement also provides the Town with options for terminating the agreement if it no longer wishes to pursue the public parking spaces.

 

The Town has included funds for the design phase of this project in the 2020 CIP and funds for the construction phase in the 2022 CIP.

 

This agreement needs to be approved by both Vienna Town Council and the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.

 

The county needs to have plans finalized no later than late spring in order to include with its November 2020 funding. To fit into the county’s timeline, Town of Vienna approval of the agreement is scheduled for the March 23, 2020 Town Council meeting.

 

Strategic Plan Initiative:

 

Vienna as an economically prosperous community.
