Wieuca Road Baptist Church members voted Oct. 16 to remain in Buckhead rather than selling the church’s 4.6-acre property, according to a statement on the church website.

Church leadership was not immediately available for comment.

The church had considered possible sale and redevelopment of its property at 3262 Peachtree Road, which it has occupied for more than 60 years. The review of that possible change of use temporarily delayed the Buckhead Community Improvement District’s plan turn the Wieuca Road/Phipps Boulevard intersection, at one corner of the church property, into a roundabout.
