  • Are there anyimpediments to the use of the building in the speculative ways previouslydetailed in the Council or sent to the Manager?
  • Are there anyissues Councillors should be aware of with respect to the building?
  • What types of uses would work in the building as it is or if it were renovated (identifying which falls under which category?)
  • What needs to be done to open the building for use?

now therefore be it
