Invalid wayspots: A church hosting a school

This is a two-fer as there is a way spot at each entrance onto this church campus.

  • Wayspot Title:

    • Oak Grove Baptist Church
    • Oak Grove Baptist Church South Entrance
  • Location (lat/lon):

    • 37.253009,-121.834401
    • 37.251463,-121.83435
  • City: San Jose, CA

  • Country: US

  • Additional Information (if any):

I recently noticed the fact that this church hosts the high-school for a different nearby church’s school program, Apostles Luthern School (that wayspot was retired in March). After some research I’d learned that, a few years ago, they’d outgrown their main campus, and the high-school portion is now hosted at Oak Grove Baptist Church.

The school brochure Apostles Lutheran School clearly mentions the campus location at 479 Blossom Hill Rd, San Jose, CA 95123 (which is also Oak Grove Baptist Church).

Additionally, shared signage:

Also visible from street view:

While the signage for the HS is only at the Southern Entrance variation, the building is actually closer to the other wayspot. So I think they should both be retired. A shame really. The earliest record I have of these spots in Ingress is from June, 2014.

Argh! And today I noticed that someone renominated the main Apostles campus, and by leaving off the “and School” part, got it accepted again.

Thanks for the appeal, @nexushoratio. After reviewing the additional evidence provided, we’ve decided to retire the Wayspots in question.

It happened so fast, I didn’t get a chance to recycle my Ingress keys for XM! :->
