More space always seems to be desired in Garden City - more space for parking, more space for senior citizen activities, more space for meetings.
Some trustees argue that the village could benefit from the four cottages currently being leased by Cathedral Nursery School for educational purposes.
School officials recently came before the board to request a license agreement renewal. The current license agreement expires June 30, 2013. School officials are requesting renewal of that agreement to expire on June 30, 2014.
Trustee Brian Daughney believes the village could use the space. "We are going to build an addition or [make] significant improvements to the senior center on Golf Club Lane. Maybe we can use the cottages for a temporary home for the seniors while this work is being done," he said.
"The recreation and cultural affairs department could use the space. The [property owners' associations] could use the space for their meetings. I am sure we can find public uses for the space."
Do you agree with Trustee Daughney? If those cottages were no longer occupied would you use the space? For what purpose? Let us know in the comments.
