True Bethel Baptist Church to expand its reach on East Ferry Street

True Bethel Baptist Church is moving along with its expansion plans to turn six vacant lots into three single-family homes at its East Ferry Street campus.

On Tuesday, the Common Council's legislation committee approved the sale of four city-owned lots to the church's development arm – True Community Development Corp. – to make way for the construction of the single-family homes.

The properties to be developed are all located on East Ferry Street. They include 825, 831, 845 and 847, which are the city-owned lots, as well as 833 and 837, which are owned by the church.

The single-family homes will complete a series of projects for the church's larger community campus, which includes a 30-unit townhome project, a 50-unit senior housing facility, a Head Start program, a Dollar General store and three previously built homes around the corner on Woodlawn Avenue. It also converted a former firehouse into offices for its community outreach arm.

The sale of the city-owned lots still has to go before the Common Council for approval.
