The Newtown Township Board of Supervisors will oppose a variance request to build a daycare center and medical office.
A company named Durham Investments has proposed a plan to construct a 10,000-square-foot daycare facility, 10,000-square-foot medical office, and convert a house on the site at 413 Durham Road into an office building. The site sits next to the municipal complex and across from Delancey Court.
The developer is asking for a variance for impervious surface, which would go above what is allowed at the site.
According to officials, the developer is seeking just over 39 percent impervious surface coverage, while the current ordinance only allows 30 percent.
The developer plans to come before the Newtown Township Zoning Hearing Board on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the township building.
The supervisors decided late last month to oppose the variance request.
As currently zoned, the property would need conditional use to move forward with the proposal.
A resident from Delancy Court raised concern about the proposal and impact in the area.
The township opposed a past plan to build 27 townhouses at the site. The supervisors previously fought the plan, and the proposal was withdrawn.
