Dakota County is in the process of renovating Heritage Library and License Center in Lakeville. This will be the first remodel for the facility since opening in 2000.
The first step is to conduct a comprehensive needs assessment to collect information about the current facility and identify improvements. The study will result in a space plan, schematic design for improvements and an estimated budget. This information will then be presented for the County Board’s consideration.
The County plans improvements through its Capital Improvement Program, a five-year plan identifying building, transportation, parks and other improvements.
Once the needs assessment is complete and the project has been funded, design and construction will take an additional 1-2 years to complete.
Check back to this site often to stay up to date on the remodel process. You can also connect with library on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for updates.
