Guam – Providence International Christian Academy [PICA] will be allowed remain at its current location in Perezville after the Guam Land Use Commission today voted to grant the small private school a Conditional Use Permit for the location that expires on June 15, 2013.
Chairman Jay Lather said the decision put the commission in a “difficult position” noting that it goes against the intended land use of the resident area while also pointing out that it would be unfair to the students of the school to close it.
PICA Founder and Administrator Pastor William Schmidt says the school is in the process of finding another location but is grateful to be able to continue at its current location for the time being.
Now that the Conditional Use Permit has been issued, PICA will be able to complete the paper work for a Sanitary Permit from the Department of Public Health and Social Services and an Occupancy Permit from the Department of Public Works.
PICA is an accredited school with about 46 students.
