UPDATE: St. Cloud Council Approves Rezoning Request for Former Garfield School

Former Garfield School, Jim Maurice

ST. CLOUD – A plan to convert an old school into a senior living complex can move forward.

Last (Monday) night the St. Cloud city council unanimously approved a rezoning request for the old Garfield Elementary School at the corner of 17th Avenue and 7th Street South.

The building is currently owned by the Good News Assembly of God church.  They have an agreement to sell the building to Cohen Esrey Affordable Partners, who plan to remodel the existing building into 17-units, and build three four-unit buildings on the existing parking lot.  All of the units would be for people 55-years-old and older.

St. Cloud mayor Dave Kleis says the sale is contingent on financing through the Federal tax credit getting approved.

Construction could begin by the end of this year.

Lead Pastor at Good News Assembly of God Church Randy Adams says the church would look for land and are hoping to build a new church.
