A nonprofit is buying Captain Buzzy's Beanery, the Church Hill coffee shop at the center of a long-running neighborhood spat that generated a campaign-style attack ad, a lawsuit and a criminal case. The latter came after a neighbor threw a flower pot at the owner.

The shop will soon be the property of Church Hill Activities and Tutoring, which will use it as a community and entrepreneurial hub.

CHAT won a $500,000 grant from the Robins Foundation to move forward with the plan, which aims to “increase job training, marketable skills and employment opportunities for youth in North Church Hill,” according to a press release.

Buzzy’s will “be utilized for a variety of retail, training and other entrepreneurial activity.”
