National Guard Armory

The DE has some more information on the sale of the Armory, including that there is no asking price, rather the Guard is taking sealed bids on the building.  No indication if there is a minimum bid or not.  A couple of city officials expressed an interest in buying it, but really, what would the city do with it?  We have a perfectly serviceable civic center, with no problems with overcrowding, at least that I know of.  The city actually got rid of a city building (the Eurma Haynes center) earlier this year, so to spend city funds on another one, without a plan in place, makes little sense.

  1. I guess you can join the old CCHS complex with old buildings, that just can't be used productively? Zone it commercial and it has a fighting chance. Can you imagine the heating bill?
