Daycares attached to other buildings
Good <Insert Local Time of Day or Night> my fellow wayfarers,
There has been some discussion in our local community about the validity of a waypoint which recently changed from a stop to a gym in Pokemon Go (the stop had been in the game for years, probably since Ingress). The point in question is the signboard on the street for the church below:
Until a few weeks ago, Google Maps listed a daycare (Centre de la petite enfance) as being next door, in an unrelated condo building. However, I noticed on Street View that it is actually behind this church and updated Google Maps as such.
I hadn't thought much of it, but it caught the notice of another member of the community, who pointed out that this would put the new gym (the church) on the grounds of a daycare and make it ineligible.
In red is roughly the former location of the daycare on Google. In yellow (because it is almost always controlled by Instinct) is the location of the gym and at the top is the daycare.
My question is twofold:
1) Would the signboard still be an eligible waypoint at this distance from the daycare?
2) Would the church itself be an appropriate waypoint? As you can see, the daycare is distinct in its architecture and location, and its facilities are behind a fence and around the corner behind the church.
I thank you very much for your feedback, and beg your forgiveness for being overly wordy and naive.
Is the sign board for the day care centre? If yes, not eligible.
The church itself, in theory, would be eligible but I'm certain the guidelines say to not accept any churches with a day care (I could be wrong on that one, so please take this comment with a pinch of salt)
Never heard that to reject public worship place with daycare. Can someone give clarification?
Signboard can be be treated as the part of business itself, in this case church or daycare. Church is eligible, while daycare aren't (please correct me). If the building and the sign is close enough, it'll be treated as one or duplicate.
In the other hand, regardless the community accepted it or not, or even if the removed Portal got submitted & accepted again, wouldn't moving Portal to a certain location for removal can be considered as playing the system?
If the daycare is as you say a separate building fenced off from the church, then the church would be eligible, but the daycare centre not. Their close proximity shouldn't matter.
"Public places of worship are often meeting spaces for the community. This does not include places of worship that also host childcare centers, preschools, or primary/secondary schools."
I knew I had seen it somewhere. It could be a case of poorly worded criteria however.
Thanks, I surely forgot the last sentence and need to re-read it again. In short, any nomination in a place/area that mainly host children under 18 OR K-12 (childcare, schools, scouts, etc) should be rejected, regardless if the object meets any eligible criteria. If the church building also serves/host childcare or multi-purpose as schools etc, it would be ineligible. Imo they're acceptable since they have separate building.
But I also saw in AMA or Casey's comment that we are to reject playground (eligible object) if they're attached to a S-F PRP (rejection criteria). This question my opinion whether it's okay to accept the church because it's neighboring with child daycare (separate building) and share the same driveway from main road..
The signboard does not mention the daycare, it only lists the name of the congregation and the times of services:
Where they are totally separate, just next to each other, I'd say the church is allowed.
