970West Studio site prep 2 - 6-29-15 sm

Crews prepare the site at Fifth Street and Ouray Avenue for construction of the Mesa County Libraries 970West Studio building.

Site preparation is underway at the future site of the Mesa County Libraries 970West Studio building.

Crews installed a perimeter fence on Friday, then today (Monday, June 29) began removing old sidewalks and otherwise getting the site ready for construction to begin.

The 3,000-square foot digital recording and production studio will be built on library-owned land at Fifth Street and Ouray Avenue. The studio will offer opportunities for the public to learn and perform professional-level audio and video recording, and it also will enhance Mesa County Libraries’ ability to document and preserve Mesa County’s unique and vanishing cultural assets as part of the 970West Digital Collection.
