Board OKs temporary classrooms
Upper Salford Township’s board of supervisors recently approved a plan by a local church to use temporary classrooms, according to Supervisor Ted Poatsy.
He said the board voted at its Sept. 12 public meeting to permit the Church of the Holy Spirit, located at 2871 Barndt Road, to use the classrooms for Sunday School.
The church will have the capacity to host several classes inside the two double-wide trailers, according to Susan Rosato, the township’s secretary/treasurer.
She said two days later that the church will continue to seek the construction of permanent classrooms.
The supervisors granted the church permission to use the temporary space until 2018, “10 years from the date of its first classroom,” according to Poatsy.
“This means that the church has six years to get a permanent structure up,” he wrote in a Sept. 13 email.
The church’s first day of Sunday School and adult forums were scheduled for Sept. 16 at 9 a.m., according to the Church of the Holy Spirit’s website.
