Zoning exception granted
Calvary Baptist is located on West End Avenue.
McMinnville’s Board of Zoning Appeals has approved a special exception request from Calvary Baptist Church to rezone a piece of property for its relocation.Church members made the request last month. However, board members postponed the decision due to a lack of information. They wanted to see a traffic study, construction plans, and architectural drawings.On Tuesday, church representatives came prepared with a letter from neighbors stating “non-opposition” to the rezoning request, a letter from McMinnville Public Works Department assistant director Brad Hennessee that he inspected the width of the road and saw “no immediate concerns” regarding traffic, and preliminary drawings showing the layout of the church, parking lot and a pavilion.
