Bottom Line

City commissioners will consider approving a site plan for expansion of the St. Lawrence Catholic Center, 1631 Crescent Road.

Background

Some neighbors of the center oppose expansion, saying it won't fit into their single-family neighborhood and will increase traffic to intolerable levels. But city planning staffers recommend its approval, saying the impact on neighborhood traffic will be negligible.
