After much debate on whether or not a church would be able to move into a ground level building at 617 Main Street in Sylva a decision was recently made. The Fathers House of Prayer had planned to relocate to the location but were stalled by a Sylva town ordinance that restricts churches in Sylva’s downtown district to stand alone buildings or on the upper floors of other buildings. The Town Planning Board denied The Fathers House of Prayer’s request for a change in zoning that would have effectively allowed the church to occupy 617 Main Street. Instead, the area will open as the new Jay & G’s Mountain Side Grill which will be a family style restraunt focusing on steak and seafood. Bob Frady, the owner of the building recently established a long term lease agreement with James McNorrill Jr. McNorrill plans on opening a new restaurant, Jay & G’s Mountain Side Grill, on August 1st of this year.
