Balance fairness and need


I am concerned about the township’s plan to rebuild the community building in Dunbar that burnt down. I can understand the need for community fairness, however the township already has a number of surplus buildings and rebuilding another does not make sense. 

The former Elma School is being used as a community meeting building and is less than six minutes away from Dunbar, so why is the township rebuilding this building? 

Is there not something else that the residents of Dunbar would like in their community that the money could be used for? A playground or other community project for example? I do not think that the money should be used elsewhere in the township, but the township also doesn’t need another building to maintain.
