The group identified six possible locations for CHC that are both privately and city-owned: the land next to Hy-Vee; parcels on Seventh Ave South adjacent to Sterling Federal Bank and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church; a parcel on Eighth Avenue South and Fifth Street; city-owned property in Miller Ridge; parcels near the Sawmill Museum; property at Fourth Avenue North and Third Street; and a piece of Chancy Park.
The viability of acquiring the property as well as the size and other characteristics of the lots have to be examined first. The group plans to meet regarding the findings early next month.
“We’re confident we can find some sort of solution,” Sisters of St. Francis representative Laura Anderson said.
In the meantime, the plans to put the clinic in Clinton Park have stalled.
