The Lucas County Plan Commission has recommended approval of a Conditional Use permit for a Semi-Public use at the Jewish Community Center for operating a preschool on the campus.
The center asked for the permit to ensure it would be in compliance with zoning regulations.
The commission staff noted that the site, 6505 West Sylvania Ave., was previously used for a childcare program of the YMCA.
The center intends to purchase what is known as the “childcare wing” and use the 9,000 sq.ft. space for office use, daycare services, and a pre-school curriculum. A total of about 45 children are expected to be in one or another of the programs.
The commission staff noted that the projected use will be similar to what the YMCA offered, but “the JCC wanted to make sure the entire use, including preschool services, had a conditional use permit on file” before finalizing its plans.
The approval recommendation was unanimous. The request will next go to the Sylvania Township Board of Zoning Appeals for final approval of the Conditional Use.
