The City of Cedar Rapids considered options for revitalizing a historic building Monday night.
Fire Station no. 2 was damaged in the 2008 floods, and a city project to reconstruct the storm sewers has brought attention to this building.
Both public and private offers for changing the building's purpose are being considered with options ranging from a fire fighters museum to a community center.
"It still has debris in it from the flood-it hasn't been cleared out properly yet, but the structure itself is in pretty good condition still," city engineer Dave Wallace said.
There are no plans to demolish the building.
Fire station no. 2 was built in 1908. The facility was one of the first fire stations, and the first brick fire station built in Cedar Rapids.
