Bishop reconsidering Mooney move

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Diocese of Youngstown Bishop George V. Murry is reconsidering his decision to keep Cardinal Mooney at its current location on Erie Street in Youngstown.

According to a release, new information about the costs of asbestos remediation to the existing school building has raised questions about the current location.

The Bishop made his original decision to remain on Erie Street in Youngstown on June 4, saying it would better serve the schools mission to serve the community by remaining on the city's south side, rather than a suburban location.

He was presented with the information about asbestos after his decision was made.

Bishop Murry will appoint an independent committee to review information about renovating the existing school.

The release states that the committee will have expertise in Catholic school mission, education, finance and building construction. It will also involve a parent and a pastor.

The committee is to report to Bishop Murry by July 31 with their findings following the review.

If the decision is to stay at the current location and renovate, the President of the Board will be asked to start a campaign to raise necessary funds to make the renovation possible.

If the review shows that relocation is the best option, a financial feasibility study will be performed to determine how sufficient the Diocese resources are to build an entirely new school.

The process in its entirety is expected to last about two months.

Cardinal Mooney High School is preparing for the opening of the school at its present location for the 2013-2014 school year.
