Barnstorming & Brainstorming

An old historic barn from Empire Ranch is the center of attention in a new controversy – what to do with its remains.

Some want it as a performing arts center, some want it to serve for parks & recreation. The city has no money allocated to build it, however a panel is being put together to explore options.
