Proposed day care eyes Dana building

RUTLAND – A large day care hopes to open in the former Dana School building.
As renovations continue at the school-turned-recreation center-turned apartment and business complex at the corner of East and East Center streets, Tareka Hand has applied for a zoning variance to open a day care serving “59+” children.
The neighborhood is zoned residential, though the building housed a day care and a handful of other businesses when it was owned by the city and served as headquarters to the recreation department.
