The Sylvania Township Zoning Commission has recommended approval for a request to change the zoning of a property on Herr Road and Resource Park Drive from agricultural to light industrial.
The current uses in the area are light industrial to the north, across Resource Park, residential to the west, agricultural to the east, and a church which 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 4.35-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.
John Healy, agent for the applicant, responding to a question, said final plans in terms of the building design and landscaping said the plans aren’t finalized, but assured the board that the development will be in keeping with the surrounding area.
Mr. Graus noted that those concerns will be considered when the development is submitted for a project plan review.
A final decision is scheduled for the Sept. 1 meeting of the Sylvania Township trustees.
