Merry Moppet Preschool / Belmont Oaks Academy Project

Merry Moppet Preschool & Belmont Oaks Academy (MM/BOA) is proposing site improvements and an increase in enrollment on its 1.5-acre site campus at 2200 Carlmont Drive.

Demolition and Construction

Approximately 4,748 square feet of existing (modular and wood-framed) buildings would be removed from the existing 20,564 square feet of buildings on the project site. The project would construct a 12,150 square foot classroom building for a total of 27,966 square feet of floor area on the site, an increase of 7,382 square feet of building space on the site resulting in a floor area ratio (FAR) of 0.42.  A summary of the project construction is shown below.

The project would be constructed in three phases:

  • Phase 1 would include demolition of the buildings and construction of the new classroom and installation of a new synthetic turf area
  • Phase 2 would renovate and replace existing play areas and install new play areas/structures
  • Phase 3 would renovate existing classrooms and administration offices in three buildings.

School Enrollment

School enrollment currently ranges from 360-75 students. Teaching staff totals 47. The proposed project would continue to operate as a private preschool and K-5 Elementary, increasing enrollment and staffing by approximately 50 students and 20 teachers for a total maximum enrollment of 425 students, and a total staffing of 67 teachers and administrators.

The project also proposes an amendment to revise the site’s zoning designation from R-3 to Planned Development (PD), adoption of a Master Plan, and approval of Conditional Use Permit. The project would require Design Review, and approval of the Conceptual Development Plan and Detailed Development Plan.

Environmental Review

A Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) has been prepared for the project; the DEIR will be reviewed at a Planning Commission Study Session on September 20, 2016 at 7:00PM (City Hall Council Chambers, One Twin Pines Lane).  Public Hearings for the project are anticipated to begin in October or November 2016.
