Proposed Exterior Features
Solar panels provide energy for this net-zero building. Electric vehicle (EV) charging stations will be available in the parking lot. A drive-up window creates convenience for library customers to pick up and drop off materials.
The library is committed to meeting its net-zero goals by maximizing the use of solar panels over a portion of the civic patio and on the building’s rooftop. EV-charging stations will also be located in the park area, as will additional solar panels. The Stevens Ranch Library is being built to meet LEED Gold standards and will be all electric.
Customers and pick-up materials at the convenient drive-up window when the library is open; they can also drop off materials through the library’s after-hours book return.
Multi-use Patio Areas
There is ample space for the public to sit, gather, and explore around the building’s perimeter. Many spaces take advantage of the region’s expansive views.
