LOGANSPORT, Ind. (AP) - A building that was used to house a Salvation Army is being repurposed to provide public a welcome center for those visiting downtown Logansport.

The Logansport Pharos-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1ZsPMWI ) that work is under way on the building, which had been vacant for several years and was purchased by the city for $50,000 in 2012.

Once completed, the building will house the city’s parks and recreation department and an art space. But downtown boosters say a one of the main motivations for the project is providing public restrooms.

Kim English has organized downtown festivals. She says permanent bathrooms offer a marked improvement from the portable toilets that have been used in the past.
