Charter School’s Expansion Project To Be Reviewed By Planning Commission

An East Redding charter school is proposing a new construction project. Phoenix Charter Academy currently operates on the Simpson University campus, and now they’d like to construct 3 new buildings totaling around 23,000 square feet on 4 acres at the corner of Shasta View Drive and College View Drive. Phoenix is an independent study and on-site learning hybrid school, so the 162 students it serves would not all be there at the same time. Improvements would be made to Shasta View Drive, including a center turn lane. The project will be considered by the Planning Commission at Tuesday’s meeting at 4 O’clock.
