The Corinna Building Preservation Group will host an informational public meeting at the Stewart Library Building on November 17, 2015 at 6:30 PM. Come learn about the effort to preserve and renovate the building.
At the meeting the architect on the project from Ames Associates will review the work in progress and describe other planned improvements. There will be an opportunity to meet the members of the committee and learn more about the long range plans to increase the use of the building and the focus on restoring the building as a center for civic and cultural life in the community. Light refreshments will be served.
The first phase of work, nearing completion, was funded by the Town of Corinna to repair the clock tower and steeple.
The ongoing Phase Two Project, managed by Nickerson and O’Day, will repair the exterior and install renovations including a fire protection system, an elevator, and other improvements to make the entire building accessible to the public. The Phase Two Project is funded by a major grant from the Next Generation Foundation of Maine and funds from the Maine Historic Preservation Commission. This work is scheduled to be complete by the Summer of 2016.
The Stewart Library Building is on the National Register of Historic Places. All renovations are guided by the Maine Historic Preservation Commission.
