Koppel Council Wants To Buy Historic Church To Get Ballfield

Koppel borough council is looking to buy a former church for its baseball field. Council president Tom Vannoy tells Beaver County Radio newsman Pat Septak that they are in the process of finalizing plans to buy the former Queen Of Heaven Catholic Church because of a nearby baseball field connected with the property. Vannoy says the diocese required them to buy the entire property in order to get the ball fields. He says the both the ball field and the building have a very rich history. Vannoy tells us that boro and police services also could be relocated to the church building but he says no decision on that will be made until the property is thoroughly examined.  He expects the purchase to be finalized within a month.
