I have a great idea to save the Head of Falls. Since the membership of American Legion Post 5 is dwindling, why doesn’t the city take over the Post’s building, demolish it and build a new police station on the site?

Using this centrally located lot would allow access to College Avenue and Front Street, as well as Main Street. At the same time, the city could receive income for rental parking spots from the Post Office.

In lieu of compensation to the American Legion, the city could build a one-story facility for less than $300,000. Then the city could beautify the Head of Falls with a park, quaint shops and hiking trails.
