Why hasn’t the recycling center been torn down and the land restored?

A:

As time passed, new uses for this space that benefit the community have emerged. The Farmers Market began using the facility for storage, sinks, and public restrooms.  In addition to burdening the School District or City with the cost, demolishing the recycling center and returning this area to parkland would effectively eliminate the amenities (bathrooms, storage and handwashing stations) required to run the Farmers Market.
