FORT THOMAS, Ky. (AP) - Officials in Fort Thomas are considering swapping property and building a new storage building for the U.S. Army in order to rein in the old cavalry stables into Tower Park.

A news business group, Midway There is seeking to turn the stables into a cultural hub for health, food and fitness and a farmer's market.

The stables building is used for storage by a U.S. Army reserve unit, the 478th Engineering Battalion.

Fort Thomas economic development director Debbie Buckley told The Kentucky Enquirer reported that the city is willing to discuss a swap of property in the back of the park and building a new storage building for the Army.

Buckley says the expectation is something can be worked out by this October.
