As reported in the last news post, the County has committed the church property to a study, encompassing all county-owned real estate, to determine the best space for office expansion for the Department of Social Services. With that in mind, Second Stage is prepared to accept the county's offer to use the church in much the same fashion as last summer again this year. The text of our offer can be found here.
We would like to urge anyone free to turn out for the Board of Supervisors meeting this coming Tuesday, March 18, at 7 PM, to support the cause! If you wish to speak in the opening public comment period, please remember to arrive a few minutes early and sign the speaker's roster.
The New Era Progress printed a wonderful editorial this week in support of our efforts and for saving this historic building. They ended the editorial with this: "What do you think? Should the Board of Supervisors give the Amherst Baptist Church building a new reprieve? Let us know in a letter to the editor: Editor@neweraprogress.com?"
It sounds like the paper is gathering a number of letters for a major printing. Make your feelings known!
We need your help NOW to save this historic structure and to continue with last year's performances and farmers' markets!
