2.  Acquisition of Palmer Fire School.  The Board of County Commissioners intends to transfer the larger portion of the Palmer Fire School property to the Historic Landmarks Commission.  

Park and Recreation will retain a small portion of the property as a greenway.  There are several matters that are yet to be determined.  City Council will have to remove the condition that the property must be used for a park or recreational purpose.  FWA Group has expressed a strong interest in buying the property and moving its offices there.  FWA's current lease expires in February 2003.  The level of restoration of the property remains uncertain.  In order to meet the County's schedule, however, the Historic Landmarks Commission must initiate the mandatory referral process to acquire the property.  Staff recommends approval.
