CFS Masset former barracks going up for sale

  • Oct. 25, 2004 6:00 p.m.

The Greater Massett Development Corp. (GMDC) is trying to find a use for the old barracks buildings located next to the Masset recreation centre.
The barracks had been sub-let by the Missing Link Society, said Jo-Ann Brown, GMDC manager, and used as a kind of hostel. However, police have received complaints about the facility, which is being used by some teens as a place to drink and party.
The GMDC decided to give notice to the one resident still living in the barracks. He has been asked to leave by October 31. After that the barracks will be locked up.
Ms Brown plans to advertise on and off islands to see if anyone has a use for any of the barracks. The heating and maintenance of the barracks costs a lot of money she said, but ripping them down would also be expensive. If nobody comes forward, the GMDC will have to consider its options, one of which will be tearing the barracks down.
