Funding needed to keep Powhatan Point Community Center open

Updated: Thursday, February 27 2014, 12:35 PM EST

POWHATAN POINT, Ohio – Members from the Powhatan Point Revitalization Association are doing everything they can to preserve the former Powhatan Point Elementary School and save all of the history and memories they’ve made during the years. The building has a deadline and if the community can’t come up with the funds in the next few weeks, they will be forced to shut down. Randy Sisson, president of the PPRA, expects they’ll have the funding, but what they are surprised about is the exorbitant cost of the permit in order to make application for their occupancy permit. Sisson says the permit will cost between $7,000 and $10,000.  “The things we have to do to become code compliant will cost us between $40,000 and $50,000.”  Sisson says their plan is to put together a Powhatan Point Community Challenge. The group is asking residents and alumni members to each donate $100 to the Community Center.  In return, they will be offered a memory brick that would have their name and class engraved in the brick.
