Sandy Springs Approves Land Use Permit for Holy Spirit Preparatory School

By a vote of 4-2 and in spite of neighborhood opposition, the Sandy Springs City Council approved a land use permit for Holy Spirit Preparatory School.  Holy Spirit can now move forward with its plans to transform the 8.01-acre, undeveloped parcel of land into a multi-use sports complex. The complex will include an artificial turf football/soccer field, tennis courts, a four-lane swimming pool and a field house, which also will house the chaplain’s office and meeting and retreat space.

The council did limit the number of night home games to 12 a year and they would be required to end at 11 p.m.

The Sandy Springs Reporter has a good summary of the arguments by Holy Spirit and from opposing neighbors here.
