Library and other offices

I would like to ask the city to re-open site selection for the
library and to ask Joe Burns to offer the old hospital site as
a potential location. This site has many positives going for
it. It is downtown, it is located between 2 parking lots and
could be built with additional parking either on the first level
or on the top (challenging but do-able). The space could be
4 levels (not including parking) with floors for the city and
borough offices. If the roof is not used for parking, it could
be leased to private enterprise for a coffee stand with outdoor
seating for those nice days or have a small green area for sitting.
Access to Grant street parking achieved with a handicap accessible
ramp and an elevator to all floors. The exterior design should
be in keeping with the historic flavor of downtown just as downtown
local business are required.
Just heard on the radio Joe Burns offered the building at no
charge - what an excellent opportunity. Call you city council
persons and push to re-open site selection!
