Barnabas House Property Sale

I used to pray to God to teach me patience.  As we pass the one- year mark on this “Sale Pending” I’ve decided the Barnabas House sale process is my lesson! We believe that a landscaper is on task now to complete the final steps to satisfy city requirements for separating the lots form the church parcel. This includes shifting the parking area on the lower level (between Barnabas House and the church) five feet to the west (toward the playground). We must also add some landscaping on the east side between the shifted parking area and Barnabas House to return it to “residential” status. A timeline is yet to be seen, but site visits, proposals, and so forth are happening.  Keep your fingers crossed! —Senior Warden, Eva Calcagno
