Preliminary site plans to build a 10,400-square-foot addition to Rochester's St. Andrew Catholic Church, 1400 Inglewood Avenue, were given a green light by Rochester planning commissioners, with the project to be subject to a formal public hearing at the commission's April 25 meeting.
The proposed addition would be used to accommodate additional gathering space, conference rooms, a music office, storage rooms and an adoration chapel. The church is located north of Howlett Park on the east side of Inglewood.
St. Andrew Monsignor Michael Hrydziuszko told planning commission members on Monday, March 5, that the church has a 106-year history and is looking to build additional space on to the existing building, which was constructed in 1967. He said the church desperately needs additional meeting room and a gathering space to use before and after services.
The commission accepted the preliminary site plan and approved scheduling a public hearing for its April 25 meeting.
