MEDFORD, Ore.--A century-old Medford church will be able to move forward with plans to double its size.
This comes after a 3-2 vote by the Landmarks & Historic Preservation Commission during a hearing Tuesday.
The church says it was unsure of how the commission would vote since city planning staff recommended the commission deny the churches request.
The church, St. Marks Episcopal Church, is located in the historic district.
The church says it will be adding a new parish hall and expanding its food pantry, along with other changes.
The city was concerned the additions were too big to preserve the historic feel, but the church maintains its a needed expansion that will be a 1.74 million dollar investment into downtown Medford.
