Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Key West (FL) waterfront
What's next for Land Trust waterfront site?
Rossi floats civic center as a possibility

Keynoter (FL)
January 9, 2010

With a Bahama Conch Community Land Trust development out of the question, what's next for Truman Waterfront property the trust had eyed?

A backup plan is far from concrete, but Key West City Commissioner Mark Rossi suggests using a former U.S. Navy building on the 6.6-acre parcel as the foundation of a future convention center.

The large building, although long disused, has the mechanical assets to accommodate a 3,000-meal-per-day mess hall.

"I think that mess hall could be very, very good integrated into the community," Rossi said. "I think it's a perfect place to have a civic center/convention center."
