(a) Determining the value of land and buildings

(1) Land and buildings purchased by or donated to the applicant


(A) The eligible project cost for land and buildings acquired by
the applicant, whether purchased or donated, shall be the appraised
value as determined by a certified appraiser no more than one year
prior to the date of the Board's deadline for application.


(B) When an existing building is purchased for conversion and will
be a multipurpose building, the applicant shall provide an appraisal
of only the public library portion of the building and site. [See
definition: section 20430(ss)]


(2) Appraisals of land and buildings


(A) An appraisal is only required if the value of the land or
building will be claimed as an eligible project cost or a local
matching fund credit.


(B) Appraisals of land and buildings to determine the best and
highest use of the property shall be in conformance with the
requirements of the Real Estate Appraiser's Licensing and
Certification Law (Business and Professions Code sections 22300, et

the applicant's library service provider, or the seller of the
proposed public library site.


(3) Contested appraisals


If the appraisal is contested by the State Librarian or the
applicant, one or more additional certified appraisals shall be
obtained by the applicant. The difference in the appraisals shall be
resolved by a determination of land value made by the California
Department of General Services, Real Estate Division.


(b) Construction cost estimate

All applicants shall submit with the Application Form a projected
construction cost estimate that is based on the conceptual plans and that
has been prepared by an architect, engineer, or a construction cost
estimator.

(c) Determining normal public construction costs for new construction

The normal public construction cost in the applicant's area for new
construction, both new facilities and square footage for an addition,
shall be based on the January 2002 cost per square foot figures for public
library buildings, as determined by Marshall Valuation Service in Special
Studies: Library Buildings . The cost per square foot for new facilities
is $202, and the cost per square foot for square footage added to an
existing building is $238. These figures do not include costs for land
acquisition; site development, demolition, utilities, or landscaping;
surface and under-building parking; works of art; shelving; furniture;
built-in service desks, counters, workstations, or other casework; movable
equipment; or architectural and engineering fees.

(1) Locality adjustment


The current cost shall be modified utilizing the following
"California Locality Adjustment Table by County." The current cost
figure is multiplied by the factor in the adjustment table to obtain
the locally adjusted cost of public library buildings.

(2) Inflation adjustment


(A) The locally adjusted cost may then be increased by 1/5 percent
per month for each month from January 1, 2002, through the estimated
mid-point of construction of the project.


(B) This figure shall be the eligible projected construction cost.
This figure, or a lesser amount, shall be utilized as the normal
public construction cost in the applicant's area unless
justification for a higher figure can be made based upon recent
local bidding experience.


(3) Optional method


(A) At the applicant's option, the locally adjusted cost figure may
be replaced by averaging the construction contract cost per square
foot for a minimum of three comparable public construction projects
bid in the applicant's county within three years of the Board's
deadline for application.


(B) If three comparable public construction project bids cannot be
found in the applicant's county within three years of the Board's
deadline for application, this locally determined comparable cost
approach cannot be utilized by the applicant.


(C) Comparable public construction projects are:


1. Public libraries.


2. Community colleges.


3. Post offices.


4. Museums.


5. Courthouses.


6. City halls.


7. Auditoriums.


8. Convention centers.

10. Senior citizen centers.


11. Public schools.


12. Recreation centers.


(4) Contingency for new construction


For projects with new construction an eligible contingency not to
exceed 10% of the eligible projected construction cost may be
utilized for any eligible cost in the project budget.


(5) Costs in excess of normal public construction cost


For projects where the projected construction cost exceeds the
eligible projected construction cost, the applicant shall provide
100% of the supplemental funds necessary to construct the project at
the higher cost.


(d) Normal public construction costs in the applicant's area for
remodeling

(1) For remodeling projects, and for the remodeling portions of
conversion and addition/remodeling projects, the normal public
construction cost in the applicant's area is the eligible projected
construction cost estimated by an architect, engineer, or

conversion and addition/remodeling projects, a contingency of not
more than 15% of the projected cost for remodeling may be utilized
in the project.


(3) For addition/remodeling projects, and for the remodeling
portion of conversion and addition/remodeling projects, an eligible
contingency not to exceed 10% of the eligible projected construction
cost of the new construction and an eligible contingency not to
exceed 15% of the eligible projected construction cost for
remodeling, may be utilized for any eligible cost in the project
budget.


(e) Project budget

The project budget found in the Application Form [see section 20440,
Appendix 1] shall include both eligible and ineligible project costs
directly related to the public library construction project.

The project budget shall also include the following sources of project
revenue:

(1) Amount of State matching funds.


(2) Amounts and sources of all local matching funds.


(3) Amounts and sources of all local supplemental funds.


(f) Calculating the eligible project costs for multipurpose projects

For each budget line item in the project budget on the Application Form,

(1) Public library direct services areas eligible costs


The applicant shall determine the eligible project costs for those
areas that are dedicated to the delivery and support of public
library direct services.


(2) Common areas eligible costs


For a multipurpose project, applicants shall determine the eligible
cost of the common areas by calculating the public library's pro
rata share of those costs.


(3) Multipurpose project cost analysis


An applicant proposing a multipurpose building project shall submit
a cost analysis that has been prepared by an architect or
construction cost estimator. The cost analysis shall compare the
multipurpose project as a whole to the public library portion of the
project, justifying the cost figures in the Multipurpose Project
Budget section of the Application Form.
