St. Cloud City Planning Commission Approves Cathedral Construction Project
On Tuesday, June 12th, the St. Cloud City Planning Commission unanimously approved the revised PUD for The Campaign for Cathedral building project. Two more approvals are needed from the St. Cloud City Council and St. Cloud Diocese, and if all goes as planned, we could be on track to break ground this fall of 2018.
One last hurdle remains. We still need to raise $5.3 million to reach our campaign fundraising goal. We hope to reach 100% of our fundraising goal this summer, as construction prices continue to climb and show no signs of slowing down. This past year alone, the Minneapolis area saw an increase in construction costs of 18%!
The longer we wait, the more costly this project will be. The time is now.
Special thanks to Jim Maurice with WJON for writing this article announcing the major step forward for The Campaign for Cathedral.
