Mini sports complex, reception hall or homeless shelter?

Which would you chose?

Reporter Bethania Palma reports Azusa city officials and residents are trying to figure out what do with a National Gaurd Armory thats been empty for more than year.
Here are some of the ideas that have been thrown out:

Suggestions ranged from turning the space into a multi-purpose center with a boxing ring, basketball courts and swimming pool to using it as a banquet and reception hall.

Planning Commissioner Jorge Rosales said the building will provide a much-needed community facility in the citys southwest section.

And more ideas:

Residents offered widely varying suggestions that included using the building as a cold weather shelter for the homeless and bringing in the San Gabriel Valley Young Marines. Many said youth programs are badly needed.

We have nothing for adolescents, resident Barry Jones said. We have a senior center, we have child care. We need a teen center.

Planning Commissioner Sandra Rentschler suggested a Boys and Girls Club while residents Mike Lee and Dick Cortes asked for a use that would benefit the city’s veterans.

All suggestions are being forwarded to the citys Parks and Recreation Commission before going before the City Council.
