One of the greatest opportunities for the Greater Junction Area community is the now vacant old police station on Mavety Street at number 209. Why the entire community within walking distance is not rushing to work to get this building into the communities hands this blog cannot fathom. Even if the effort is simply to tell the local elected persons of the need for the multiple uses this building can offer for the community.
A few months ago the blog received an email about residents on Mavety Street organizing a public meeting about the building, which this author thinks did not happen.
Of course the city needs to declare the property redundant or in other words not needed. They can decide the building and land are need for the revenue their sale would generate, selling the site for a short-term cash infusion to the huge city budget would be a great loss to the area.

The police station and its lot are great opportunities for a complete building reconfiguration.
This design is based on the concept of a body cell with its nucleus as the core and surrounding elements that are being confined by the cell membran byFrench architects Paul Le Quernec and Michel Grasso have shared with us photos of their recently completed collaboration, La Bulle Enchantée, a nursery in Sarreguemines, France.
