The Buffalo Grove village board has cleared the way for the Torah Academy to operate in what school leaders hope is a permanent home at 720 Armstrong Drive.
Village trustees approved a special-use permit allowing the Hebrew elementary school to move into the property that is in an area zoned for industrial uses. The site will include an outdoor play area in the yard north of the building. The school will serve 22 students from preschool through fifth grade.
The academy's move to Armstrong Drive comes just about a year after it moved to the Woodland Commons shopping center in Buffalo Grove after the former Congregation Beth Am, where it had leased space for about four years, became the Buffalo Grove Park District's Community Arts Center.
