The former St. Patrick’s School at 81 W. Bayard St. is close to being sold to local chiropractor Dr. Kingsley Kabari.
Kabari, a graduate of New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, plans to convert the vacant, two-story school to a wellness and fitness center. He would move his existing Maximum Fitness Center in the Tops Plaza on Routes 5&20 to the former school.
The sale is contingent upon Kabari getting a use variance from the town. The Seneca County Planning Board will review Kabari’s use variance application at its 7 p.m. Thursday meeting in the Heroes Conference Room of the County Office Building in Waterloo.
The property is zoned one-family residential, with primary and secondary schools an allowed use in that district. A use variance would allow the property to be used for the fitness and wellness center, plus medical offices and other offices. Kabari could not be reached for comment.
