Building swap raises questions
On the other hand, that same building “has its own set of problems,” as Walpole put it. In other words, it needs some renovation work to bring it up to par with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements and other repairs.
The jury is considering the idea of swapping its Police Jury Complex building on Alabama Avenue, which houses the HELP Agency, TRIAD and the Council on Aging, with the Arizona Avenue building, which belongs to Crossroads Church.
It’s location that is driving the swap idea, but is it worth it for the parish to pay the price of upgrading the existing building?
