Crestview City Council considering donated building's possible uses

 “The police chief has … asked me about having a portion put up at his location to house confiscated vehicles in an area that is secure,” Steele said. “They only have room to park one car in their current area.”

City planner Eric Davis told­­ the council that city codes would require landscaping and adequate parking whether the building is split in half or relocated intact.

Council Members Tom Gordon and Tim Grandberry agreed with Helt, but requested more time to study the matter before the council makes a decision.

Iannucci — who supports the recycling center as part of green initiatives he is pursuing for the city — agreed.

“We don’t want to sit on the building, but I don’t like the ‘dartboard’ way of making a decision. I want to make sure we address all these possibilities and make the best decision. I think we need input from the citizens about what we should do with the building.”

Iannucci proposed a workshop to discuss all the ideas before making a decision.

The council then voted unanimously to add discussion of what to do with the building to a previously set Feb. 9 workshop.
