PLYMOUTH – An expansion that will nearly double the size of the Christian Life Assembly of God church won Plan Commission approval Thursday.

Architect Jeff Smies of Smies and Associates presented the plan for the addition to the commission.

“The new church addition will be located right alongside the existing building,” at 933 Krumrey Street, Smies said.

The existing church and the new building will be connected, with the new building consisting largely of a new sanctuary space along with offices, bathrooms and supporting rooms.

“We’re still tweaking this as we go,” Smies said of the floor plan for the addition.

“We’re adding only a minimal amount of new pavement,” under the plan, Smies noted.

Eight current parking space would be eliminated by the new addition, “but we’re still well over what the ordinance requires,” Smies continued.

The church will be left with 128 parking spaces, where the city code requires 78.

The church has already received an easement from the Plymouth Town Board to extend a city water line across Town Hall property to the proposed new addition.

An existing retention pond on the church property should be able to handle any additional water runoff from the addition, Smies assured the commission members.

Public Works Director William Immich noted that the architect still has to submit drainage and erosion control plans for the addition, as well as a final construction plan.

The commission approved the addition contingent on those plans being approved by Immich.

The September commission meeting was moved to Thursday, Sept. 8, to avoid a conflict with opening night of the Sheboygan County Fair.

Building Inspector Pete Scheuerman told the commission he expects developer Premier Real Estate Management of Brookfield to present a site plan for their proposed apartment complex on Hill and Dale Road at that meeting.
