Boys Town Spokesman John Melingagio said Wednesday that after hitting too many roadblocks in trying to develop a site in the area to serve troubled youth, the sale in negotiations with JPI Investments.

He said the property was originally purchased in 2000 for about $2 million. The funds to buy the land came from the sale of farmland in Omaha. Four townhouses sit on the land, though a short-term emergency facility and an office building were originally planned for the site.

He said opponents of the project have halted the development of that site so Boys Town is now looking to move to a different location.

Boys Town has operated another site in the District of Columbia for over 10 years. Melingagio estimates that the sale, for an unknown amount, could go through within the year.
