The Twin Cities German Immersion School in Saint Paul has been temporarily halted from demolishing an old church on their property. A Ramsey County District judge issued the temporary restraining order, but opponents of the demolition have to raise $2 million for the order to stick.
The restraining order delays the Twin Cities German Immersion School’s plan to demolish the building for an expansion project, but perhaps not for long. As part of her order, Judge Jennifer Frisch required residents opposed to the plan to provide nearly $2 million through a security bond by 2 p.m. on July 22 to cover the potential impact on construction costs.
If they don’t? “The temporary restraining order will automatically and immediately lift and vacate,” Frisch wrote. Otherwise, a full trial is scheduled for December.
