Update 8/1/15 – Property negotiations underway!
We are currently in negotiation to purchase property located adjacent to US 33, one mile north of Columbus Road in Athens. We have secured the services of Bittner Dispenza Thomas architects. We are formalizing a master plan for the site. The leadership team met with the architect to discuss initial sketches and layout. The next steps are obtaining district level approval of the initial plans and purchasing the land. We are starting to consider specifics about HVAC, sanctuary, outside design, multi-use capability, classrooms, worship, technology and multimedia needs. Additional details forthcoming.
