Buying the post office is a no brainer. I just hope we can do it! It is historic, beautiful, and right in the heart of our town. There are many uses for which it could be suitable. I am all for it!

After Palo Alto buys it, it will get boarded up and remain that way for years due to the "Palo Alto Process".
During this time the downtown bums will break in.
After that, it's just a matter of time before a "suspicious" fire guts the insides.
Now, the gutted remains will not only be boarded, but the property will be fenced off - again for years.
Eventually it will be sold (at a loss) to a developer, and another JCC like monstrosity will be built all the way out to the sidewalks.

It should not be used to expand staff space. It should be used for something to enhance the public experience.
Dont use it to feed Keene's bloated bureaucracy, and keep the local developers out of it. They've milked the community enough.
