Demolition of Creswell’s Community Center

This proposal of SLF&R is so totally self-serving that it’s hard for us to articulate all the reasons this idea shouldn’t fly with our City Council.
During this era of environmental concern, it’s suggested we consider a sound building as disposable as plastic bags. Demolishing this building would not only be wasteful, it would release many airborne pollutants.
We’re sure that an inspection would uncover asbestos and/or lead and require an expensive hazmat demolition crew.
The mature landscaping would fall victim to heavy equipment. Then the still-functional firehall would also be discarded . . .
