Wayside Christian Mission accepts offer to purchase its Market Street property

Wayside Christian Mission announced Thursday that it has accepted a "generous and reasonable" offer to purchase its Market Street property.

The mission had wanted to expand, but ran into resistance from its neighbors in the East Downtown Business Association.

Wayside wanted to expand by demolishing three buildings while saving the facades.  The new structure would have served as housing for its women and children shelter.

But Thursday, the mission said the new offer would "result in improved facilities for our women and families."

A public hearing that had been scheduled for Thursday night by the Landmarks Commission has been cancelled.
