The traffic consultant hired by the library not surprisingly says there is enough parking if on street parking is counted. Lombard's code of ordinances requires that only deeded or long-term leased parking spaces may be counted toward the required parking of a facility, including public facilities. The library board somehow believes that they don't have to comply with the rules that the village enforces for any and all other entities. This fiasco has been going on for almost two years and there isn't even an agreement with the park district concerning air rights. Either build elsewhere downtown on a large enough piece of land to include parking and which isn't encumbered by air rights restrictions or end this now. This library misled Lombard taxpayers.

Helen Plum Library Board Member Sue Wiggens walked out of a board meeting open session yesterday during a heated discussion concerning the "new library" that will likely never be built. Now it appears that, aside from parking, agreements for variances need to be secured from the park district, but the board seems to want to only discuss two items with the park district and is unwilling to discuss with the Lombard Park District additional areas which resulted in the PD's rejection of the library's plans entirely last September. The library board has certainly done a poor job and now they are openly fractured. Stop the foolishness of trying to expand on a too small lot. Either find a larger piece of land or return what's left of taxpayers money.
