WHAT: On Friday, January 12, 2018, local dignitaries, elected officials, and project partners will gather to commemorate the groundbreaking of the new San Ysidro Branch Library. Situated on 1.6 acres, the 15,000-square-foot San Ysidro Public Library will be a transit-friendly development. Located two blocks from the Beyer Blvd Trolley Station, the project will feature designated areas for children, teens, and adults; an event space; and a 1,000-square-foot outdoor patio/terrace. It will also showcase artwork by local artists, brothers Einar and Jamex De La Torre. The design-build team, led by SVA Architects and Turner Construction Company, is assisted by consultants: KPFF Consulting Engineers, LPG Engineering, MA Engineers, Wimmer Yamada and Caughey Landscape Architecture, Brummitt Energy Associates, NORESCO and Michael Baker International. The team is seeking LEED Silver Certification in recognition of the project’s sustainable features including photovoltaic solar panels, water efficient fixtures, and efficient HVAC systems. The library will become a cultural beacon for the neighborhood and a source of pride for the local community, who has been promised a new library for many years. Construction is anticipated to be complete in the spring of 2019. SPEAKERS:• Mayor Kevin L.
