Church leaders concerned about redevelopment
The 112-year-old church is located just blocks away from the relatively new Interstate 71/Martin Luther King Jr. Drive interchange.
It was a project designed to boost the local economy, but church leaders are worried redevelopment in the area could push them out of the community.
The predominantly African-American church sits on Reading Road in Avondale.
Pastor Michael F.
Mack said that prime location could pose a problem.
The church is now landlocked by soon-to-be new development, and he worries the church could be next.
