National Guard offers its building to city

January 6, 2012

WOONSOCKET – The Rhode Island Army National Guard is offering to turn over to the city a cavernous brick garage, situated on nearly an acre of land, for the nominal price of a buck.
After touring the site with representatives of the Guard Friday, Planning Director Paulette Miller said the city is leaning in favor of accepting the offer, but it wants to make sure the building on Avenue A is structurally sound first.
“It appears to be an appropriate acquisition,” said Miller. “But we’ll be making another pass through here with our engineers before we make a decision.”
