Coventry PEACE Campus

Leases with the individual tenants of the Coventry PEACE Campus building expired as of June 30, 2020. Negotiations have been held this month between the library director and the tenants. The library director had hoped to ask the board to approve a letter of intent at this special meeting. However, the PEACE campus tenants and its board are not in agreement with the library. Areas of disagreement include the base rent and tenant responsibility for utilities, operational expenses, and maintenance. Negotiations will continue in private with the involved parties. The special meeting was adjourned with no action taken by the board.
