McCall Library Expansion Bond Election
On May 18th, 2021, the Library Renovation and Expansion Bond Proposal will be on the ballot
for City of McCall voter consideration.
The proposed investment would renovate and expand the current library, bringing the 50-year-old building into ADA compliance and ensure accessibility for all ages and mobilities. The 2021 proposal includes a bond amount not to exceed $4,200,000, while a large portion of
the estimated cost would be paid for with cash, grants and pledges already received in the
amount of $2,300,000. Proposed Annual Property Tax Impact per $100,000 Assessed Value would be $15.98.
Changes to the 2020 bond proposal reduced overall costs and impact to voters by $2M.
If it passes: Space would be added and appropriate ventilation, parking, and ADA measures
would be put in place. The proposed facility would have the flexibility to serve into the future
for at least another 50 years. It would allow free public year-round meeting, study and
presentation spaces, and create opportunities for advancement in technology.
If it fails: Improvements will need to be made as funds come available to repair the current
building damage. Space and ADA compliance would continue to be a hurdle in serving the
community. Staff would continue to turn people away due to full classes and events, while the
book collection would remain the same size.
