The Upper St. Clair Planning Commission last week voted to table the vote on a proposed zoning amendment to revise the definition of a daycare center.
The Goddard School would like to demolish the existing house at 1630 North Highland Rd. and build a daycare center.
The problem? The property is .994 acres and the existing law in Upper St. Clair requires 1 acre of land for a daycare center.
The landowner, Alex Bunson, will meet with township staff in the next month. The planning commission is expected to again take up the issue on Jan. 17.
The proposed new daycare center sits next to the existing KinderCare of Mt. Lebanon on North Highland Road.
Bob Santo, owner of the Goddard School in Peters Township, told planning commissioners in October that—if approved—the Goddard School in Upper St. Clair would likely have programs for infants through kindergarten.
