The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) was established for the purpose of stabilizing communities that have suffered from foreclosures and abandonment.

Monroe Emergency Ordinance No. 2010-06 is an ordinance accepting Neighborhood Stabilization Program Funding, committing to GAP Financing and future maintenance costs, for the development of a community center and available space for a library, and declaring an emergency. This issue was tabled at the last Monroe Council meeting on April 27, 2010.

Susan Wise from the Monroe Lending Library spoke to council last night about the library board plans to contact the Middletown Public Library to explore possible projects together. Peggy Abernathy and other library supporters were at the meeting.

“Once we’re in the building and established, I think we’re going to want to start getting into some talks with them about if there now some more concrete interest in us in becoming a branch of the Middletown Public Library,” Susan Wise said. (Thanks Denise Wilson for the quote)

After she spoke, council unanimously voted in favor of Ordinance 2010-06. Mayor Routson was absent for the vote.

Kudos to Susan Wise and the Monroe Lending Library and good luck with becoming a branch of the Middletown Public Library System.

This new library/community center project will likely take a year or two until completion.

The city will own the building and have total control. The library will only be occupying a portion of the space. I mentioned becoming a branch of the Middletown Library as something to think about down the line as a means to fund full time staffing here in Monroe. I understand the lending library has consistently held an olive branch out to Middletown, only to be told they have no water, or a vase, in which to hold it.

One thing I know for sure: I personally thank Council for making this decision and having confidence in our lending library. This will enable us to offer many more services to our residents and we couldn't be more excited.

are they still looking at the old Dialysis Center on East Ave or part of the old High School?

I like that location (East Ave)and the building. It's centrally located, one level and there's a lot of parking.
