A flurry of construction work will likely soon fill the grounds of New Living Word Church and School, as the group received conditional use approval from the Ruston Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday night.
After an extended discussion about fencing, trees and safety, commission members voted unanimously to recommend to the city that the church, which is zoned as residential area but also includes the school, receive a new conditional use permit. This conditional use includes approval to move forward with building a two-story school building, which the Rev. Jerry Baldwin, who serves as principal, said will be able to house nearly 400 students upon completion.
