Father Murray and the Archdiocese have officially selected a developer for the St James School. It will be a joint venture between Salem Renewal, and North Shore CDC. They will be renovating both schools (St James and ICC on Hawthorne Blvd).

The proposal is a 99-year lease, so the archdiocese will still be the owners of the property. In terms of design, they are at the very early stages, and they want to talk with neighbors and community stakeholders before they go any further. To that end, we’d like to invite you to a meeting with the developers to hear their proposal for the space, and an opportunity for them to answer our questions about the project.

The meeting will be at St James in the Admin Building/Chapel Sunday April 15th at 4PM. Possible tour of St James School to follow.
