The Upper St. Clair Planning Commission denied the request to recommend that a zoning amendment be added to allow for The Goddard School to be built next to the KinderCare on North Highland Road.
The planning commissioners did not explain their reasoning during the Thursday night meeting.
The property owner, Alex Bunson, was requesting that the township change it's zoning ordinance for daycare centers to be allowed in the R-3 district. Other allowed buildings in the R-3 district, such as nursing homes, are required to have 1 acre of land. Bunson's property is .994 acres.
There were concerns about changing the R-3 zoning ordinance because single-family residential homes are next to the property of the proposed daycare center.
The application will now go to the Upper St. Clair Board of Commissioners without the recommendation of the planning commission.
The final plans for Bedner Estates and the application to build apartments off Boyce Road, items that were both on the agenda earlier this week, were tabled for a later meeting.
