NATCHEZ — With no one representing Cathedral School at the Natchez Preservation Commission at its Wednesday meeting, the commission postponed review of a site plan for construction of a new middle school facility at Cathedral School.

The commission agreed that someone from the school or from Waycaster & Associates, the architectural firm for the project, should be at the meeting to answer questions or address concerns of the commission.

The middle school facility is part of an approximately $5 million update for the Cathedral campus.
