KINGSVILLE -- County officials have given their final go-ahead for a 500-seat church planned for a 16-acre tract at Belair Road and Cheryl Avenue.

On Tuesday, the three-member Board of Appeals concluded that the Grace Community Church project would have to be reviewed by the planning board because it would be about 1,000 feet from a historic stone building. But Thursday, the appeals board determined that was not close enough to require the review.

The reversal means that those building the church can apply for building permits, although residents -- who have protested that the church is too large for the rural area -- can appeal the decision to the courts.
