We prepared this feasibility study on behalf of the Kaslo and District Public Library, Selkirk College and North Kootenay Lake Community Services Society. The project, known as the Kaslo Common Space Initiative (KCI), created a group of representatives from the three partners known as the Common Space Working Group (CWG).
The goal of this study, as a first phase of the initiative, is to understand the current situation of each partner, develop an understanding of their future needs and examine two site options for developing a joint facility. The first option is a “test-fit” and impact analysis of a potential renovation of the Kemball Memorial Building, with an addition described as the “annex”. The second option provides a contrasting option for an entirely new building on a theoretical generic site.
