Milton to discuss school expansion

Milton’s Planning Commission will consider a school expansion proposal during its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Milton City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway.

Red Apple Montessori School at 3505 Bethany Road is looking for a rezoning that would expand the existing school from 2,000 to 6,000 square feet to accommodate up to 150 students ranging in age from 18 months to 6 years old.

The plan calls for two variances that would reduce a 50-foot buffer to 10 feet and cut a 100-foot setback for recreation areas to 40 feet along the school’s north property line.

The commission will also discuss amending swimming pool standards for detached dwellings.
