Wasting time


To the Editor:

I am writing in response to the article in the Dec. 19 issue of the Grosse Pointe News, "Library decision overdue in Woods."

As I read the article, I could not help but wonder what more John Bruce and the library board must do in order to receive approval from the Grosse Pointe Woods planning commission. It sounds as if Mr. Bruce and the board have made numerous detailed presentations to the commission providing them with all of the necessary information for a final decision.

It pains me to read that the commission is dragging its heels on a matter as important as this.

The public libraries in my area have recently begun surveying community members regarding the "possibility" of updating the various local branches. It is going to take years before any physical changes are actually made to the buildings, not to mention the fact that voters need to approve funding for the project.

Grosse Pointe is past all of this. The building is designed and ready to be built, Grosse Pointe Woods taxpayers have already voiced the fact that they want the new library, and more importantly, they are willing to fund this beautiful, state-of-the-art facility.

I cannot believe the planning commission continues to ask questions that have already been asked and answered by Mr. Bruce, the board and the architect.

They are wasting precious time, and from the way it sounds, they could soon be wasting precious dollars if they continue to postpone their approval for much longer.
