The federal department ol public works is still consider- ing elopmpnt of (he post office building. Under investi- gation is the feasibility cf de- molishing the front of the post office (Ihe original post office built in 1912) and erecting an office tower. The post office addition, built in 105B. would be used by the post office and (lie tower for federal offices and commercial establishments, such as a bank. The proposal is one of many which have been under consid- eration. It is now with the de- sign section of Ihe department of public works. If any development is to take place, it will not be this fiscal year, a government official told The Herald. A lot of work still has lo be done to determine if such a pro- ject is economically feasible and then it would have lo be approved by Olfawa.
