BROOKSVILLE - A Brooksville resident is seeking permission to open a private Christian school with a start-up enrollment of 30 students.
The organizer, Mayra Leon, said she will begin promoting the school once she receives the special exception use permit necessary to open a religious-educational facility.
The private school would offer classes for K-12 students during the day and provide adult education in the evening. Leon would renovate an existing 2,340-square-foot building at a commercial-professional plaza on the northwest corner of Ganz Drive and Ponce De Leon Boulevard.
The facility would conform to regular Hernando County school hours and hold classes from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There would be three teachers.
Adult education would be held 7-9 p.m. Monday through Wednesday.
An educational facility is an allowed use in the commercial district but a special exception use permit is needed.
The planning and zoning meeting will begin at 9 a.m. Monday at the Hernando County Government Center, 20 North Main St. in downtown Brooksville.
Planning commissioners will also discuss updates to the land development regulations at Monday's meeting.
