Village Fails to Put the Historic Main Building to Public Use
information and belief, based on a conditions survey and program
study conducted by a consultant in 2002, the Mayor’s Committee
on St. Paul’s recommended to the Trustees in mid-2002 that
the Board take action to preserve the Historic Main Building for
the next two years, the Village Board considered and debated a series
of options, including stabilization of the building, threshold use,
development into a library/community center, and private sector
commercial development as a residential condominium, but the Board
was unable to reach a consensus as to any of the options.
December 16, 2004, the Board of Trustees enacted a resolution officially
designating the entire St. Paul’s property as protected “parkland.”
On the same date, the Trustees passed a resolution directing the
Mayor’s Committee to conduct “needs assessment”
of community groups that could make use of a public facility at
to a news report published on March 25, 2005, the Mayor’s
Committee reported there was a “strong demand” from
various Garden City groups for community space, and that if space
were to be made available for public use at St. Paul’s, it
would “without doubt” be utilized. The report added:
“A true cross-section of village groups, representing all
age groups, have a need for space … and St. Paul’s has
the space to satisfy many of those needs.”
