Back to the drawing board

December 11, 2013

Now that Seneca has abandoned a former school property for its utilities department, where might the Light and Water Department look for a new home? Utilities Superintendent Bob Faires dropped a hint during last night’s city council meeting. He told the mayor and council that his office is working with architects to adapt city property one block behind City Hall. “We may not get everything that we needed and everything we did have (referring to now the abandoned Kellett plans,) but let’s just see what we have there,” Faires said. At the utilities superintendent’s request, the council last night released the Kellett Project Committee from a January 14 deadline to report on what should be done with the former Kellett Elementary building and property. The committee has been considering more than 30 potential ideas—including recreation facilities, a dog park, a library, office space, and leaving the property in a natural state. “I think, in time, we’re going to come up with a solution,” Faires said. But he said more time will be needed.
