Update: Moses Tucker Backs Out of Contract to Purchase LR Childhood Center

Update:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -  Moses Tucker will be canceling their contract to purchase the Woodruff Early Childhood Center said Capitol View Stifft Station Neighborhood Association in a statement on Facebook Tuesday. 

The statement says that Moses Tucker has determined that the cost of the project was too high for them to implement.

Capitol View Stifft Station Neighborhood Association stated in the Facebook post:

We wanted to share this information with the neighborhood as soon as possible. We are disappointed in this outcome and will continue working with the Little Rock School District in finding a use for the building that fits our neighborhood. We spoke with Superintendent Poore earlier tonight about Moses Tucker's decision. He is disappointed by the news but tells us that the school district is actively pursuing other options for the property and will share more as they move forward. Mr. Poore has been proactive in communicating with the neighborhood and plans to continue to keep us in the loop as new possibilities develop.

Capitol View Stifft Station Neighborhood Association will have their next monthly meeting Monday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. at the Oyster Bar. They say they will be sharing more information with the neighborhood then.
