The Covington City Council will decide on the “hot topic” St. Scholastica Academy expansion plan on May 20th. The plan, which was approved by the Historic District Committee on April 8th, was appealed by local area residents opposed to the expansion. The proposition has reached such momentum that it has outgrown the City Council Chambers, forcing this May 20th Council meeting to be moved to the School Board building on Jefferson Avenue, across from the City Hall. All those interested in this issue, whether for or against, are encouraged to attend this meeting, from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. Learn more about the opposition at welovehistoriccovington.com, and more about SSA’s proposition at www.ssacad.com.
Annie Spell has produced four videos in opposition to the SSA expansion plans. These well composed videos can be viewed on the We Love Historic Covington website.
