Sac Bee reports that earthquake retrofit rules will force the St. Francis of Assisi Elementary School to relocate… to the former site of John Paul II School in Tahoe Park.
[St. Francis Principal Laurie] Power said estimates for the retrofitting have come in between $3 million to $5 million.
“We obviously don’t have that kind of money lying around in our checkbooks,” Power said. “It will take a lot of planning.”
Funny, the only reason there is an empty site is that the diocese didn’t have a dime to save John Paul II. I am happy though that the site in Tahoe Park won’t go unused.
