The houses for the Peace Campus for 500 began to arrive on Tuesday and the first house was installed on Wednesday.
After three months of work on the infrastructure and construction of the houses in a factory, the campus will begin rising up out of the ground. One house will go up each business day! Since the end of June, concrete trucks have been rolling down 170th Street to the site where piers are being poured in preparation for the arrival of the houses. Piers are already in for 33 of the 45 buildings.
The campus is comprised of 100,000 square feet of space and 46 buildings. Forty-four of these buildings are in 11 clusters of 4 buildings each. Each cluster is designed to serve 44 students and one teacher and includes three residential buildings, and a fourth building with dining, classroom, and flying room.
Furniture will be ready when the buildings are complete, along with commercial dishwashers for the dining halls. A chapatti machine is also being ordered from India that makes 2000 chapattis per hour!
There are two additional buildings: a central kitchen specially designed to make it easy to transport food to the 11 dining halls. This way the students will always be comfortable in their own environments and not have to walk long distances for meals. There is also a residential building for staff. The kitchen will be built on site. The residential building is coming from the factory.
The City is installing a wastewater treatment plant at the south end of the campus to serve this area, which should be completed in a little over a month. It is underground and almost nothing is visible from the surface.
It has now been determined that the campus will be owned by Global Country of World Peace, an Iowa non-profit corporation. It is truly an historic time, when the cherished desire to create peace for America and peace for the world, will be fulfilled.
