Chabad House of Greater Toledo gets approval to construct new community center in Sylvania Township

By  | 

SYLVANIA TWP., Ohio (13abc Action News) - Chabad House of Greater Toledo will be allowed to build a nearly $2 million community center.

13abc was there as Sylvania Township’s Zoning Appeals Board approved the project tonight in a 4-0 vote.

The board decided the Jewish congregation can demolish its existing house of worship on the site along King Road near Central Avenue. A new structure that is twice the size will be built.

The zoning board determined the new building would not harm the neighborhood although the plan drew some objections at earlier hearings.

Requirements for the property include proper fencing, parking, landscaping and signage.
