We could house the people of NY and others who were devastated by hurricane sandy. They need some kind of shelter and warmth. It makes sense since they have heat, dorms, showers and kitchen facilities. The facility was closed to save funds, so it isn't like it needs repairs or staff to run. The people would just use the facility as a home base until they actually have a place to go again.

Why waste available resources?

      Makes sense and if there is a need they should do it.

      Its a large facility with heat - this will accommodate the numerous families that have been misplaced - also please have an area for their pets!

      As a former employee at AKCF, I fully support this idea!! The buildings have been sitting there for almost a year and vacant with no plans as of yet!!! Open it back up for people in need and put it to good use!! The state is wasting the money anyway by not doing anything with it! Put the tax payers money to good use for once!!!
