Document Description
The proposed Project would revise the existing CUP for Cate School to allow for (1) expansion and renovation of existing educational and administrative facilities over the life of the Master Plan, including 26,582 sq. ft. of demolition, 180,861 sf of new construction, and 41,402 sf of renovation; (2) an enrollment increase from 280 students to 300 students; (3) revisions to the existing onsite childcare center operation to open enrollment to the local community, as long as 60 percent of enrolled children are affiliated with Cate School; and (4) authorization to use the existing portable Public Address (PA) system for sporting events and school functions. Although the proposed project would result in amendments to the CUP that would allow for a new development and changes to Cate School operations, the proposed project would not alter the existing permitted campus use as a private high school and boarding facility.
