Hayward: Public toilet access dominates new library, arboretum discussion

from the Contra Costa Times

“Where are you going to go when you need to go to a restroom downtown? That was the focus of much of the public comment Tuesday as the City Council approved plans to build a $63 million main library downtown and demolish the old one, converting that site into a park. Several speakers at the meeting objected that the plans do not include restrooms in the new park … People can use eight public bathrooms in the new library, which will be across the street from the current site, according to a staff report. Those will only be available during library hours, however.”
