The Sylvania Township Trustees have approved a change in zoning from agricultural to light industrial for a property on Herr Road at Resource Park Drive.
The change in zoning will allow for the construction of a building for a plumbing business with room for offices, inventory, and for business vehicles. No retail use of the building is planned.
Current land uses in the area are light industrial to the north, across Resource Park, residential to the west, agricultural to the east, and a church that is under construction to the south.
Although the township’s land-use plan calls for residential development south of Resource Park, Daryl Graus, manager of the township’s planning and zoning department, noted that the construction of the church makes it unlikely that the 3.4-acre parcel will be developed as residential.
He added that the church in the future will act as a buffer between the light industrial and any residential development to the south.
