Community School one small step away from P&Z sign off

Express Staff Writer

Sun Valley Planning and Zoning commissioners Tuesday deferred final approval of the conditions that will govern a conditional use permit for The Community School to construct a new elementary school on its 30-acre Sagewillow campus in Elkhorn.

The panel is scheduled to convene in a special meeting today at 10 a.m. in Sun Valley City Hall to review a long list of final conditions discussed Tuesday.

The conditions are primarily aimed at keeping the impacts of the project on neighboring residents to a minimum and include provisions to severely limit the number of vehicles that can access the campus via Arrowleaf Road.

The Sagewillow campus is located at the end of Arrowleaf Road.

The conditions also outline penalties for the school if the conditions are violated. The restrictions state that the school will have to take immediate measures to reduce the number of vehicles passing through the neighborhood after its first violation and must reduce its enrollment after the second violation.

The P&Zís final approval of the conditional-use permit and conditions does not require approval of the Sun Valley City Council. However, the decision can be appealed, and the phased construction project must still go through the cityís design review process.

The panel Tuesday agreed to the final conditions but asked to review the final document with their approved changes one last time before it is signed for final approval.
