Concerns over the cost of security mean the city’s showcase exhibition “Vancouver House” will not be held in the main branch of the Vancouver Public Library during the 2010 Games as had been planned.

According to a report to council tomorrow, Vancouver House, “a major pillar” of the city’s 2010 Olympic celebration program, will instead be moved to the LiveCity site, at Georgia Street.

Among the reasons for the move are the complexity and significant costs of security to house the exhibition in the library’s atrium.

Moving to the LiveCity site should mitigate the risk of cost overruns and decrease the operating and security costs.
