Sword Deaf Church plans college dorm

From: Cincinnati Enquirer - Cincinnati,OH,USA - May 16, 2004

MASON - Residents can speak out next month on plans from Sword Deaf Baptist Church to build a college dormitory.

The church already holds some ministerial college classes for about 40 deaf and hard-of-hearing students. The dormitory would house 100 students.

A public hearing on a rezoning request for the 9.68-acre site on Mason Road will be held during city council's 7 p.m. meeting June 14.

The church wants the property rezoned so it can build a nearly 15,000-square-foot church addition, the 30-unit dormitory and a 1,800 square-foot single-family residence.

The dormitory could open as early as fall 2005.
