Parker News
                                Parker's landscape is changing and one of the most striking 
                                examples is the location of the future home of the library. 
                                According to the Douglas County Library website, the new library 
                                will be a "two-story, 40,000 +/- square-foot replacement of the 
                                current Parker branch, just north of Parker Town Hall and the PACE Center. The new library will have a minimum of 150 parking spaces, and be adjacent to a park."  Perhaps the first part of that last sentence is worth repeating:  "The new library will have a minimum of 150 parking spaces . . . . "  Yeah!    And thanks to technology, we're able to get an idea of what will occupy that space.  Click here for a video and renderings and here for The Town of Parker's webpage with information on that area, called the EastMain Development Project.
