Zion Council Approves Special Use Permit


Zion Council

Approves Special

Use Permit

The Regional Safe School Program was granted a special use permit to move their school from the Pierce Campus to the Grace Missionary Church located at 1415 27th Street in Zion. The Grace Church has a full gymnasium and sufficient classrooms to house the alternative school for disruptive students in grades 6-12.

“Due to demolition of the facility, the school needs to find another location,” says Dr. Michel Munda, principal of the Regional Safe School program.

The Safe School program has been located in Zion for about 21 years. However, there were objections to moving the school to another location in Zion.

Josephine Lasato, a Winthrop Harbor resident, said that she owns 14 single family homes located across from Grace Missionary Church and that she was opposed to the school relocating to the site.
