Library & Community Complex Master Plan
The Library & Community Complex is an important community asset for Tempe. Home to the Tempe Public Library, Tempe History Museum, Edna Vihel Center and Pyle Adult Recreation Center, the complex is a thriving hub of activity in the heart of Tempe. The master plan, funded by the Landscape Improvement Project, will assess and make recommendations for renovating existing vegetation, hardscape and irrigation systems, water reuse improvements and creating a management plan, which will consider directional signage. The landscape budget includes funding to shade pedestrian paths, identify entries from the street and improve parking with resurfacing and restriping.
In addition, the plan will provide conceptual ideas for plaza modification, pedestrian paths, gateway points, lighting and placemaking signage that can be utilized as a baseline for future projects once additional funding is identified.
