*Facilities Plan:  The applicant must examine in detail the present and future public library facility needs required by present and anticipated public library programming, keeping in mind that library buildings are to be planned for a 20-year population projection.  Provide a site analysis; space needs assessment and the project design (to include an elevation drawing, site plan, and floor plan for the proposed project).  Address the library's ability to maintain and sustain library operations following completion of this project (i.e., building maintenance, expanded costs for utilities, staffing, maintaining a larger collection).  Address how the library will provide access for the disabled.  If applicable, explain in detail if the project involves addressing life safety hazards as outlined in the Administrative Rules.  Provide all relevant financial documentation as it relates to the library's local cost share responsibility including funding sources, local financial resources, current revenues, fund balances, and unused bonding capacity.
