Hilltop Baptist Church Seeks Special Use Permit to Operate Child Care Center

GREEN RIVER — Hilltop Baptist Church is seeking a special use permit from the Green River City Council to operate a child care center within the existing church.

The child care center would provide care for infants and children through the age of five. It would operate from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. According to meeting documents, the total number of children served may be as high as 100.

The special use permit is needed to operate the center, located at 405 Faith Dr., as it is currently zoned as R-1. While a church is a permitted use in any residential zone, a child care center subject to State of Wyoming requirements is allowed by right in only business zones. The church has been working with the Department of Family Services to obtain state licensure.
