Request on private school expansion postponed

Florida Education Properties has postponed its request to have the Palm Beach County Zoning Commission consider its expansion plans at a private school site at Hypoluxo Road and Lyons Road.

The commission was set to take up the request on Thursday, but the item was pulled from the agenda at Florida Education Properties’ request.

A 350-student school has already been approved for the site, but Florida Education Properties wants permission to boost the number of students to 1,200.

The request has drawn opposition from those who argue a bigger school will generate too much traffic.

COBWRA – the Coalition of Boynton West Residential Associations – has announced its opposition to the request. County staff members have recommended that zoning commissioners deny the request, which is expected to be discussed when the Zoning Commission meets on September 1.
