Voices Charter School

The project proposal, Voices Charter School (also referred to as Monterey - Voices), is a request for an Environmental Assessment (EA20018-0024), a Conditional User Permit (UP2018-0015), and a Design Permit Approval (SR2019-0032). The Development Site would include a development of a kindergarten through eighth (K-8) public charter school. At full Build-out the proposed public charter school would serve up to 504 students and include 63 employees. The proposed public charter school would be developed in two phases. Phase I would include development of a 27,825-square foot two-story school-building, an uncovered parking lot, a playground and turf play area, a lunch shelter, a 405-square foot trash enclosure, and associated improvements. As part of Phase II, the existing lunch shelter would be replaced with a 7,326-sf multi-purpose room to include a reading room, a special education room, storage space, and two bathrooms. Access to the project site would be provided by a new 24-foot driveway off Cosmo Avenue connecting to the proposed parking lot at the northwestern portion of the site. In addition, the project would include a separate emergency vehicle access driveway off Monterey Road at the northeast portion of the site. 


The project site is located on a 2.02-acre vacant parcel, North of Cosmo Avenue and West of Monterey Road in Morgan Hill, California. Assessor's Parcel Number: 767-17-047.
