Three Rivers Montessori School can move to River of Life Church, 21695 Elk Lake Road, where it now has a five-year lease with that church.
The school, which will be the first Montessori charter within the boundaries of the Elk River Area School District, was originally supposed to be housed in the basement of Elk River Lutheran Church. The City Council approved a five-year interim-use permit for the church earlier this summer. City staff had some issues with parking at the church and with sprinklers in the basement.
Senior Planner Chris Leesburg told council members that there were no such concerns with the new location. He said the previous permit will still be in effect.
