What's Your Take on Center Place, Library Parking Lot Upgrades?

Work nears completion on the parking lot upgrades for the Sandy Rodriguez Center, which houses both the Brandon Regional Library and the Center Place Fine Arts & Civic Association.


Parking lot improvements and additional parking lot spaces are the reasons for the construction work that has been ongoing at the Sandy Rodriguez Center in Brandon, which houses both the Brandon Regional Library and the Center Place Fine Arts & Civic Association.

Here's a collection of photographs taken recently.

What's you take on the work under way? Do you welcome the lowered entranceway, which replaces the high-rise that led in some cases to the scraping of the undersides of vehicles? In all, six new parking spots have been added. It's not a lot, but is that welcome relief regardless?

Let us know in the comment box below.

All that mess for 6 spaces? Really? Maybe we could erect a parking garage over the pond on the east side of the library. Might accommodate more &allow for a few handicap spaces. Pegat

It's such a shame. Center Place is a jewel, but parking is always a problem. 6 more spaces is definitely a help. It's too bad that the county has shot down previous ideas for expanding the parking. If I ever find a bottle with a genie that grants one wish, I'm gonna ask for a county commissioner that cares.

I can't believe they are spending all that money for just 6 more spaces!! They need at least 50 more. The "shared" lot is two blocks away and when you have arthritic knees and hips and a pile of books, that is way too far away.
