Jeff Rainford, chief of staff for Mayor Francis Slay, said the mayor "will be for the most cost-effective option that is the most beneficial option to the Police Department and we don't know what that is yet." He said the mayor was not interested in a temporary solution.
Those options are to A) rehabilitate the 1927 structure, B) demolish and rebuild, or C) relocate altogether. Somehow I doubt that the quote from Jeff Rainford indicates that the city will look at what the effects of losing a solid, historic structure would be when you have a surface lot across the street. Or the value of embodied energy. Or how to build a better building than what's already there.
Option B is ludicrous.
