Atlantic City's Free Public Library will run a forum beginning at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 14, to get public input on a museum plan.

The library already has hired Mills + Schnoering Architects to do a feasibility study for the Atlantic City Experience, a museum and research center that would focus on preserving the city's history and multicultural heritage, according to a statement released Monday.

Representatives from the library and architecture firm will run the public session in the meeting room of the library at 1 N. Tennessee Ave.

The feasibility study, which will cost $50,000, will analyze trends, assess market conditions and available funding, and also take into account demographics and community needs in developing parameters and recommendations for the location and size of the museum.

Langan Engineering, financial feasibility expert The Eisen Group, cost consultant Becker & Frondorf, and museum planning and design consultant Van Sickle & Rolleri will team with Princeton-based Mills + Schnoering on the project.

The statement did not provide a cost estimate, and library officials were not available for comment late Monday.

More information is available at 609-345-2269, ext. 3112.
