FEMA to review local housing offer

September 15, 2005

Albany- An Albany church's plan to provide temporary housing for Katrina victims is now in the hands of the federal government. Life Christian Center International hoped to turn the old Nike missile base in Worth County into temporary homes for evacuees.

Thursday night, church leaders met with the Worth County Planning Commission to discuss their long term plan to turn the property into a youth retreat. The church hopes to be able to turn it over to FEMA temporarily.

"We have submitted a form to FEMA, giving them the right to use the property for temporary housing," said Stan Glass, Life Christian Center International Pastor.

FEMA will decide if they need the property. The planning commission will hold two public hearings on the church's plans to use the facility for a youth retreat.
