From the announcement:

The City has recommended using the former Fire Station 39 site to create housing for homeless and/or low-income families, with ground floor uses that serve building residents and the community at large. The City Council wants community feedback before it makes a decision on the property. These meetings provide an opportunity to give your input.

Proposal for the old Lake City Fire Station: public health or urgent care facilities
The City proposes that the old Lake City Fire Station and City office located next to the new fire station be converted into more homeless housing. The reality is that 3 large low-income housing complexes have already recently been located in Lake City providing subsidised housing for thousands of new residents in our community yet there is no hospital or nearby urgent medical services available in Lake City. Considering how much growth of population that has occurred in the Lake City area in the last few years, I propose that the City convert this public relic into public health center or urgent medical service instead of yet another homeless or low income housing. The staff at the fire station will support this proposal since the sick and dying are being dropped off at the fire station for emergency care due to the lack of these services in the Lake City area.
