Parking will be provided in a parking lot adjacent to the building. The existing building (former church) will be demolished. The existing parking lot will be modified to meet current landscaping, stormwater and dimensional requirements. The modified parking lot will continue to be accessed from the private drive to Clague School. The petitioner has obtained an access easement for use of this drive. There will be no new curb cuts on Nixon Road. Bicycle parking will be provided with access provided by a sidewalk linkage from the sidewalk along Nixon Road.
