Church plans win approval

The county Planning Board voted 5-0 yesterday to recommend approval of a zoning exception allowing Bethel Assembly of God Church in Savage to build a new church and high school.

The church plans a 500-seat church and 100-student high school on a seven-acre site at Route 32 and Volmerhausen Road.

The site is part of the Shipley Meadows subdivision, a collection of three properties designated for town house construction.

The Planning Board found that the planned church and school will conform to the surrounding areas, which are zoned medium- and high- density residential.

The surrounding properties are a wooded lot to the north, the right of way of Route 32 to the east, single-family homes to the west and a proposed 61-unit town house development to the south.

The 300-member Bethel Assembly of God Church is on Woodward Street in Savage. The church runs the 160-student Bethel Christian Academy, which has students from pre-school through eighth grade.

The church plans to break ground on the $1.6 million facility next September and move in a year later.

A Board of Appeals hearing on the proposal is scheduled for Feb. 18.
