All one-person, for maximum flexibility of use at a small cost in space occupied.
At least two of them, so that we're not unduly inconvenienced when one is broken.
One should be truly handicapped-accessible, with suitable fixtures, grab-rails, etc.
Everything on one level.
A loading dock:
Standard height (4').
Capable of handling a semi-trailer.
Well-lit (we often load / unload after dark).
With enough of a roof to keep off rain and snow.
Other conventions to which we send a truckload of stuff.
Delivery of books.
Walkways, the parking area, etc. should be well-lit.
A kitchen area:
sink, counter, cabinet space
space and power for refrigerator(s), microwave oven, coffeepot(s), etc.
A variety of places to eat (open evenings) within easy walking distance.
Warehouse areas (a likely source of the type of building we want) rarely have convenient sources of food. If we have to choose between a good building and convenient food, the building wins hands down.
If necessary, we can plan on organizing group takeout orders to cover most food needs.
On public transit:
Meaning within half a mile of a stop / station with 30-minute or less headways on Sundays and evenings and which connects reasonably to the rest of the system?
Are there any legal requirements on us as new / renovating owners or tenants?
We do have some handicapped members, though none of them are currently active.
