We continue to make steady progress with the Sunset Property.
Unfortunately the Miami-Dade County Commission denied Somerset’s site plan at their May hearing. Somerset will begin planning an appeal process, leveraging the extensions described below.
At the Christ Journey Business Meeting held on February 22, 2017; a motion was presented and passed that allows Christ Journey to offer Somerset six one-month extensions (starting April 1) in addition to existing provisions in the lease to provide Somerset with additional time to secure the final approvals from the County, as well as address any potential appeals. The use of each extension requires a non-refundable extension fee.
Once final approval is received and any appeals addressed; we would expect commencement of construction.
Christ Journey teams have met with the architects and planners for Somerset to understand the details of their proposed timeline and to coordinate it with our own church project development. Long Range Planning Committee has decided that we will wait for more certainty around Somerset’s approval, prior to investing any additional funds in planning for the building of the church facility.
For more information, please contact Angel Almaguer through the church office.
