The future of a former school is under debate after being ravaged by fire more than two years ago.
Cordyce School in Dyce was destroyed in a deliberate blaze in November 2017.
It has since been a point of contention while Aberdeen City Council has sought bids to give the site a new lease of life.
Applicants have included the owner of Parkhill Garden Centre, which hoped to move from its current home on the B977, and boxer Lee McAllister who was keen to build a fitness village.
It was however recommended that no offers should be accepted at a city growth and resources committee last April.
The council subsequently said in October that the site would be brought back to the commercial market in due course.
The future of the site is set to be discussed as part of the local development plan at a full council meeting on March 3.
The proposals for the Parkhill Garden Centre had proved a popular option with many of the local community.
Denis Will, chairman of the Dyce and Stoneywood Community Council, said it would be a disappointment if the site was turned into housing.
He added: “It is next to the river and there has never been housing on it. It would just be a shame if that was allowed to happen.”
Following the meeting in March, a strategy for the site will be developed for the council-owned land.
