The Mission Hill Property that was recently taken over by Pottawatomie County has been renamed.

The Mission Hill Property that was recently taken over by Pottawatomie County has been renamed.

The Pottawatomie County Board of County Commissioners approved the name change and the former Mission Hill property is now Pottawatomie County South Annex.

This property has been a topic of discussion as of late. The county purchased the lease that Saint Anthony Shawnee had with the Hospital Authority.

Two months ago, the county commissioners office was contacted by the Citizen Potawatomi Nation with the threat of a federal lawsuit. A draft of the lawsuit was dropped off at the commissioners office.

CPN believes the land is not being used in the correct manner.

The Pottawatomie County Health Department, Solara and the Family Justice Center currently occupy the property on Gordon Cooper Drive.
