YGIC to expand at the Hindu Temple

BEAVERCREEK — The Hindu Temple in Beavercreek will soon be expanding their youth program.

The facility is located at 2615 Lillian Lane after the City of Beavercreek City Council approved the final reading of the rezoning of land allowing for construction. The construction is to commence within 30 days after of the approval.

“I’ve been invited to numerous occasions for several events,” Beavercreek Mayor Bob Stone said. “ The temple has also been a wonderful addition to the community and always a good neighbor.”

The property is located south of the existing buildings and is owned by the Youth Group for Indian Culture (YGIC) and is currently a vacant piece of land.

The Temple wants to construct a new building on this property for the use of an additional religious education facility to be used in conjunction with the existing Sunday services at the Temple’s main facility.

“YGIC ran a school on the premises of the Hindu Temple,” Dayton attorney Ron Kozar said. “They would like to house the school in its own free standing building on the same property.”

The measure was passed by majority vote during the April 9 city council meeting.
