“The prospect of building a new library in downtown Costa Mesa was met with some skepticism by a city committee Tuesday tasked with citizen oversight of City Hall spending.The Finance Advisory Committee heard the City Council’s plan for the estimated $34.5-million project, which includes demolishing the Neighborhood Community Center in Lions Park, constructing a new 20,000-square-foot library in its place and renovating the Donald Dungan library branch into a meeting space.”
