WHAT'S NEXT FOR THE NOW FORMER POLICE HQ?
6/15/2017 6:54:37 PM
St. Thomas City Council will vote on the future use of the old St. Thomas Police station at Monday night's (June 19) city council meeting. Council will vote on putting the building at 30 St. Catharine Street on the market for lease. Staff is recommending that the building be put on the market until the end of this year to see if there is any interest from a long-term tenant.
If there no viable tenants by the end of December then a report would be brought to council to turn the space into a "Central Civic Square and Meeting Place." The space would connect all of the city services in the area (City Hall, Library, St. Catharine Street Parking Lot, L&PS Corridor). The early estimated demolition cost is $400,000.
Funding for the demolition and transformation of the site would be included in the 2018 Capital Budget.
