Restore the gym floor and use the armory for what it was always used for, ballgames, dances, etc

I still cannot find one reason an armory is called historical; its hysterical.

So a bunch of guys went to war from these steps; does that make it historical.

Are all other bus stations, airports, railway stations historical for the same reasons?

include new restroom facilities: the restrooms will be closed at the end of every business day. They will not be open, 24-7 . So much for the public restroom hoopla.

I'm not sure why people are so opposed to the renovation of this building. Marietta is such a historic town and to not preserve fixtures such as this would be a tragedy. Marietta needs to focus on bring manufacturing jobs to the area, even if it’s not located within city limits. Even if the business is outside the city limits, Marietta will still benefit in many ways, including maintaining the historical value and charm that it has. To not preserve such a structure permanently destroys some of that charisma.

They have to spend some money that's already in the bank in order to scam the grantors into believing that this is a viable project. If they didn't spend real money on doors and windows, an awful choice for a demolishable building, the grantors would not give the money to the city. They are scamming all of us tax payers by playing games with these state grants. There is no business plan and the voters of Marietta NEVER voted to renovate the Armory. It's a very small group of people and a selfish, money grubbing council making all of this happen.

Put it on the ballot. Make the council show us the business plan, which doesn't exist!

God help us all.
