Celebrate bails on School for Deaf project/land

I heard last night that Celebrate has decided to pull out on the deal, even though they were slated to go in front of the Planning Commission. I’m not sure why they decided this way, but a parishioner told me that Pastor Keith felt there was too much turmoil within the congregation over the deal.

I also heard it was a ‘complicated’ deal.

Not sure if it had anything to do with the weird rules the Board of Regents imposes with land leases or not?

The good news is that the land could eventually be used as a new Whittier, which I think would be a better use for the land.

If the deal fell through is true then I’m glad because I’d like it be kept as school/educational setting, not another church.

it would be a good location for the new whittier. however, wouldn’t several of the old buildings need to be torn down? those old buildings can’t be replaced.

Hopefully a religious cult will buy it.

Maybe that crowd south of Custer might buy it.
