At its meeting on June 18 the Frontenac Board of Aldermen gave final approval to the final subdivision plat for the townhomes that Payne Homes plans to build on the site of the current trailer park and the 1.6 acres of the church's property that has been under contract with the developer for almost two years. This is great news for Faith Des Peres! With the proceeds from the sale we will be able to pay off the balance of the loan remaining on the Gathering Space and will get new parking facilities in the front and the back of the church. Later this summer, the Session will begin consideration of how the balance of the proceeds from the sale will be handled and we will keep you informed of these discussions. We expect that the closing on the sale of the property will occur in July and after that we should have at least a preliminary schedule for the work on our parking lot. A big thanks to all of you for your interest and support in this endeavor. This is, indeed, an exciting time for Faith Des Peres.
