Former Gordon Cooper Library parcel rezoned with conditions

October 14, 2013
At a recent meeting, Carbondale trustees rezoned the land beneath the former Gordon Cooper library. The group planning the future James Surls museum and education center needed that zoning change in order to complete the project.
