After an independent site review revealed no major need for soil remediation, according to Pastor Devin Locati, parishioners from the Seventh-day Adventist Church of Buffalo expected July 24 to close on the purchase of land for a new worship home in Big Lake Township.
The church received a conditional use permit from Sherburne County July 9 to establish a new worship center at the former site of the River Rock Bar and Grill, 20455 187th Ave. N.W. Locati, told the Monticello Times that the church will keep the “shell” of the existing building while renovating and expanding the floor plan to move in for services within six months, upon approval of permits from the county.
