Subject: (EXCP-11-13-3413) Special Exception Use request to Operate a Private School and add/upgrade the Ballfields at 7620, 7600 & 7556 Old Moon Road.

Rick Jones, AICP
Director, Planning Department

On 11/4/2013, Calvary Christian School/Ricky Smith submitted a Special Exception Use application to operate a private school and add/upgrade the ballfields. The properties are located in an SFR1 & 3 (Single Family Residential 1 & 3) zoning district. The site for the existing/proposed private school and ballfields is approximately 33.48 acres. Private schools are permitted in an SFR1 & 3 zoning district only on a site-specific basis upon approval of the Council based upon some conditions.

Attached is a land use map showing the location of the property along with the proposed site plan. The Planning Department staff is currently reviewing the request. We project the request will be on Council’s January 14th’s agenda. A staff report has been sent to the Clerk of Council prior to the Council meeting date.
