In a recent blog post, Farmington Mayor Pro Tem Bill Galvin suggested the sale of publicly owned properties for private development and building a new city campus with some of the proceeds.
The idea of selling properties like the former 47th District Court building on 10 Mile Road, the Maxfield Training Center on Thomas Street and even city hall is nothing new, Mayor Tom Buck pointed out during a Monday night city council meeting. But with the push to create a new vision for Farmington, we thought it would be fun to do some dreaming.
Here's your assignment:
Imagine that Farmington City Hall and Public Safety Department, and the Farmington Community Library Farmington branch were lifted off the property that stretches down the east side of Liberty Street from Grand River to State Street. What kind of private development would you like to see there? Or should it remain "as is"?
