A special use permit is being sought by Goldfish Swim School to establish a swimming lesson site for children as young as four months.
The family-owned business is seeking the permit to operate classes from the former Family Video site at Holland-Sylvania and Brint roads.
Tim Gilbride, one of the owners, said that if approval is granted, interior construction could begin early in the new year with swimming classes hoped for in early summer.
He said lessons for children as young as 4 months are for acclimation to the water, with a parent holding the child through different exercises. He noted that classes are available for youngsters up to 12 years old.
The company, which operates several Goldfish Swim Schools, intends to lease the undeveloped property just south of the site and develop it for additional parking.
Included in the swimming lessons are important points about being cautious around the water, he added.
