The building belongs to the city. The organization needs a private donor to step up and donate a place for them to use.

I thought I remembered that the Scouts built the building.

I beg to differ:

In one of the final steps of a long-running attack on the Boy Scouts' Cradle of Liberty Council in Philadelphia, the city council has voted to renege on a 1928 ordinance allowing the Scouts to have their headquarters in a building on a parcel of public land "in perpetuity." Link Here, here or here if you like.

The ONLY reason it belongs to the city to begin with is because the scouts gave it to the city in return for the $1 a year rent in perpetuity.

The building was built the Boy Scouts.

Only the dirt belongs to the city.

Please take the time to learn the subject BEFORE you post.
The Boy Scouts built and PAID for this Building, totally 100%. They then deeded it over to the City in an agreement where they were granted a Lease in Perpetuity of the Entire Building for their Exclusive use for $1.00 per year. The Cit y is trying to steal it back under the guise of gay rights. Let me know where I can Donate! and shove Mayor NUTCASE into the Philly Zoo!
