The Cranbrook and District Arts Council has sent a letter to Cranbrook City Council rekindling its interest in Fire Hall no. 1 as a permanent home.

In the letter Mitchell Pocha, president of the CDAC, notes that the organization is looking at the space to house its operations and notably a public art gallery. The gallery would only be the first phase with later additions including workshops, exhibits and events.

The arts council noted that it would be ready to move in “in the very near future.”

Coun. Sharon Cross noted the interest that the CDAC was expressing, but wondered when the information from the downtown block public session would be available.

In that session, members of the public met in a workshop environment to come up with ideas for what the downtown city-owned block between Baker and 1st Street and 10th and 11th Avenue.

The old fire hall was identified by many as the key component of that area.

City staff plans to present that information in January.
