Final decision made on Depot Park building

Posted: Updated:

WHITEFISH - The Whitefish City Council came to a decision earlier this week on the Depot Park master plan.

The city denied a request from the Whitefish Chamber of Commerce to put a building on a 10-year lease and turn it into a visitor’s center.

After almost an hour of testimony, mostly in favor of keeping the building, the council still decided it would go through with the demolition of the structure.

The building is located across from the O’Shaughnessy Theater, on the corner of Railway and Central.

The building was formerly the city parks and planning departments after being sold to the city from the Park Side Credit Union in 2009.

The chamber felt it was the best place for a tourist center and added that Whitefish needs a visitor center since our economy is so heavily based on tourism.

The city responded by saying that creating more green space in the park was more important than keeping the building.

Councilor Katie Williams made a motion to postpone the demolition and considered the lease, but the motion was shot down when no other council members seconded.
