Rock Island aldermen will consider a proposed expansion to a child care center at their council meeting tonight.

LaTonya Terrell has provided licensed in-home child care for nine years at 3150 12th St., Rock Island, and wants to apply for a special-use permit to operate a larger day carecenter at 1740 9th Ave., in avacant formermedical office building.

The property is zoned residential, according to a city council memo. The proposedbusiness will have five to seven employees (some part time and somefull time) and serve up to 40 children.

Hours of operation will start off being from 6 a.m.to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and may be extended to 11:59p.m. after six months, according to the council memo.

There is a side parking lot with space for about 15 vehicles.The impact of the use on neighboring and adjoining property owners can best be determined by apublic hearing, which would be required in a special-use permit application, according to city staff.

The facility will be used for learning activities and the serving of meals, according to a letter from Ms. Terrell. She also plans to place a lighted sign advertising the center on the lawn in front of the building.

The city council meets at 6:45 p.m. on the third floor of city hall, 1528 3rd Ave. A complete agenda can be found at www.rigov.org.























 



Local events heading








  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
