CHURCH HILL — Act­ing of the rec­om­men­da­tion of the Church Hill Plan­ning Com­mis­sion, the town com­mis­sion­ers in­tro­duced Or­di­nance 160/16 at their May 16 meet­ing to make some changes to the por­tion of the town code cov­er­ing home child care cen­ters.

Un­der cur­rent town law, the max­i­mum num­ber of per­sons al­lowed in a home day care cen­ter is four, ex­clud­ing res­i­dents. At the re­quest of a lo­cal day care provider, the Plan­ning Com­mis­sion rec­om­mended that the max­i­mum num­ber al­lowed in state-li­censed day care cen­ters be in­creased to eight, ex­clud­ing res­i­dents.

The or­di­nance also re­quires that safe park­ing and load­ing and un­load­ing ar­eas be pro­vided at home day care cen­ters as long as the flow of traf­fic on ad­ja­cent roads is not af­fected.

There will be a pub­lic hear­ing on the or­di­nance on Mon­day, June 20, at 7 p.m. at the town hall.
