Community Development Update: 1800 Elm Street

Posted on October 25, 2013 at 3:27 PM by Suzanne Iarla

The Zoning Administrator has received a request for a zoning determination on this property. The application is available for public review during regular business hours at City Hall. The request asks staff to find that the existing use permit for the former private school (Windrush) would be sufficient to allow Summit Public Schools to open a 240 student middle school at this location next fall. Staff will be asking the applicant to more fully explain their proposal, including hours of operation, traffic and parking impacts, and play field use. Once the applicant has submitted this information, the Zoning Administrator will provide a response in writing to the applicant. That determination is required within 30 days of a complete submittal pursuant to Section 19.33.040 of the El Cerrito Municipal Code.
