Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Wakuegan (IL) Marine Corps Reserve Center
City, schools eye armory re-use

Preschool for 600 is one possibility

WAUKEGAN -- The Marine Corps Reserve Center on McAree Road, which dates back to the Cold War and activated Marines during both Iraq wars, started slipping out to pasture four years ago when it was placed on a Base Closure and Realignment list by the Department of Defense.

As the building's service winds down, two suitors have two very different uses in mind for the property. The Waukegan Police Department is eyeing it for storage and training, The Waukegan Unit School District wants to see a preschool in the main buildings.

The City Council's Public Safety Committee approved a measure Monday recommending that at least portions of the site be used by the Police Department for such things as physical-fitness training and storage of evidence and large vehicles.
