Crestview City Council considering donated building's possible uses

It would be disassembled using inmate labor at relatively little cost to the city, he said.

After discussion with Council President Ben Iannucci III, Steele said the building could be a city recycling center, and could be reassembled for that use on city-owned property off Brookmeade Drive.

Councilwoman Robyn Helt at Monday’s meeting suggested a different use.

“I am recommending that immediately upon disassembly, the building be immediately reassembled in Country View Park to provide an additional service for our citizens,” she said.

The building could provide a community center for “Zumba classes or any other kind of recreational facility,” she said. “That facility (Country View Park) is in need of improvement and it’s been in need for quite some time.”

After discussions with Steele, Helt said the building could be split in half and provide the city with two new buildings.

Crestview Police Chief Tony Taylor had a suggestion for one half, Steele said.
