Board OKs tem­po­rary class­rooms

Souderton Independent - - OPINION - By Bradley Sch­legel

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.
