It will be a State of Michigan Licensed Child Care Center operating from 5:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday thru Friday. It will have a capacity of 125 children and a play area of 1200 square feet as mandated by the State. Mr. Kolar had a question as to how many parking spaces they had available. Mr. Charter noted that they would need about 3 or 4 for the people to drop off the children. He also noted that he would have 20 employees but there would only be 10 at the facility at any given time. Parking shouldn’t be a problem.
Mr. Lazette was questioning as to whether they had thought about the lighting situation. Mr. Charter noted that they were still in the planning stages of construction and up grading existing building issues. They would make sure that all of the lighting would be up to code.
