LILA eyes campus on Fenway

Lakes International Language Academy may end up expanding to the Headwaters Development, after all. Assistant Director Shannon Peterson said the Forest Lake charter school has a tentative purchase agreement in place with developer Len Pratt regarding a 14-acre property along Fenway Avenue, south of TH-97. It is close to the site LILA had pursued this summer before complications arose. Various approvals will be needed from city boards, but Peterson said the public school hopes to have its second campus up and running by next fall. It would house grades four through six. Kindergarten through third grade would remain at the existing campus on 11th Avenue Southeast.
