Schoolhouse Beat

Town says school can continue to build gym

Construction has resumed on a new gymnasium at an all-girls school in Amherst, N.Y. The Buffalo News reports that the town's building commissioner had issued a stop-work order on the project, but has lifted it now that the school is working to resolve parking issues. Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart is building a gym with seating for 500 people, a dance studio and fitness room, but adequate parking has been a sticking point. The school was unable to secure a long-term parking agreement with the adjacent property owner and needs to fit 167 spaces onto its own campus. Town officials believe the school has enough land available for the parking.
