VACAVILLE — No reportable movement was made involving the possible sale of the Carnegie Library during Tuesday’s closed session of the Vacaville City Council.
The 1915 classical revival building, which houses Vacaville’s Chamber of Commerce, is one of several properties owned by Vacaville’s former redevelopment agency that the city has been mandated to sell by the state’s Department of Finance.
Cities throughout California are in the final stages of closing down redevelopment agencies. As part of that closure, the finance department decreed only certain properties can be transferred from former city redevelopment agencies to the cities themselves.
Vacaville is locked into a battle with the finance department in an effort to keep these properties. As recently as last month, the Carnegie Library was included in those properties Vacaville wanted to keep.
Mark Creffield, the chamber’s president, said Friday that the investors of the DeVille Theatre expressed an interest in the property.
City representatives declined to comment for a previous report because it is a closed-session item.
