Mount Vernon Library Commons Project

The Mount Vernon Library Commons project is a MULTI-use infrastructure project located in historic downtown Mount Vernon along Interstate 5. 

Combining several community needs, this project is a catalyst for economic development in the Cascadia Innovation Corridor along the Interstate 5 corridor between Seattle and Vancouver, BC, and represents a $45 million investment in the local economy.

This project includes public library services, community center space, and structured parking with a public mega charging electric vehicle charging floor, park and ride, and transit stop. 

As an equitable anchor institution of any modern city and region, the Library is well-positioned to extend its role as a critical community connector; offering a place for seniors to gather, an early learning hub, access to digital literacy, new business incubation, employee training, and the necessary tools that strengthen democracy by addressing knowledge gaps.

A public parking structure with a public mega electric vehicle charging floor, combined with other infrastructure, is a purposeful City investment and an efficient way to catalyze private development in historic downtown.
