AEA 267 buying Pipac Centre

Posted: Updated:

A well-known Cedar Falls event center has a buyer, and they didn't have to look far.

Area Education Agency 267 is buying the Pipac Centre.

The AEA board of directors approved the deal last night.

The agency will pay $4 million for the building.

AEA plans to move its headquarters there and use the facility for professional training for area educators.

The board plans to sell its 3 buildings on Cedar Heights Drive. It will hold a public hearing on that in the spring.

"We have long needed a space that would get all of our Cedar Falls-based employees under one roof as well as provide large-scale conference space for the thousands of teachers, parents and community members that we invite in every year for trainings and meetings," said AEA 267 Chief Administrator Sam Miller.

They expect to move in next July.
