The city of Crown Point plans to turn the long-shuttered Lake County Greenhouse property as the proposed site for a new City Hall and police building.

Located at the intersection of North Street and Indiana Avenue, the greenhouse closed more than a dozen years ago. Previous plans for the site called for a restaurant and brewery. Another local man wanted to start an aquaponics operation out of there to grow and distribute fresh vegetables. 

City officials hope to break ground on the facility in June or July.
