Fate of S.H.A.P.E. Community Center in jeopardy following auction

Posted: Updated:

The battle is on to save the historic S.H.A.P.E. Community Center after the historical facility was sold in an auction for pennies on the dollar.

It was back in 2009 when a New Jersey-based company received a default judgement against the community center for failing to pay a lease agreement involving a $30,000 office copier.

The New Jersey company sued on the east coast and won a default judgement. S.H.A.P.E. Community center was ordered to pay $66,000 but never did, according to court records.

That is when the company Tygris came back with another judgement to take all three buildings owned by S.H.A.P.E.

The properties, worth over a million dollars together, were auctioned off Tuesday for $81, 000.

But attorney for Shape Ben Hall says he has filed an injunction with the courts to put the sale on hold until he's able to get a hearing on this issue.

We spoke with Ben Hall who was in Missouri and he said S.H.A.P.E. will stay in the hands of the community.

DeLoyd Parker, director of S.H.A.P.E., would only say the community will not lose the community center.
