A controversial plan to expand a day-care center won conditional backing from the Parks, Planning and Zoning Commission on Tuesday night, city planner Merv Waldrop said. City Council will discuss the proposal March 12. Small World Day Care of Citrus County Inc., at 242 NE Seventh Ter., agreed to plant a 4-foot-tall vegetation buffer along the 400-foot rear property line and to put up a 6-foot-high fence at the rear of the playground to reduce noise for neighbors.Correction
A story Wednesday misspelled the name of a man who brought a petition to the City Council opposing the construction of a jail in downtown Inverness. He is Everge Smith of Inverness.
