Truman Gym at McClellan to be Demolished

Friday, July 7, 2017

 

After years of sitting empty, FEMA has decided to demolish Truman Gym at McClellan. The building was donated by the City of Anniston to the Federal Emergency Management Agency to be used by the Center for Domestic Preparedness. The CDP planned to use the property for additional parking and as a workout facility. The gym closed after Anniston built the new aquatics center in 2012. In 2013, the City donated the building to the CDP, but it took FEMA until September of 2016 to accept the property. By then, according to Anniston City manager Kent Davis, the building had already decayed to the point where renovation would be too expensive.
