Jones-Gordon School expected to go before Town Council in August

The vacant Tesseract school site at Tatum Boulevard and Doubletree Ranch Road in Paradise Valley is set to get new life and improvements thanks to a unanimous vote by the Paradise Valley Planning Commission on July 11 to amend the site’s existing conditions of use. Their vote approves a new cap of 160 total students, including the addition of up to 60 upper-grade students. The site is currently approved for a total of 340 students, preschool through eighth grade. Without the stipulations set forth by the applicant, the student maximum of 340 would remain in effect.

Jones-Gordon School request approved by Paradise Valley Planning Commission

A few extra weeks to meet, discuss and resolve issues has proved to be fruitful for the Jones-Gordon School as its request moves through the inner-workings of the Town of Paradise Valley. After asking the Planning Commission for a continuance to its June 20 request for a minor special use permit amendment, the Jones-Gordon School returned to Town Hall for a positive outcome. Several residents, school officials, parents, students and Councilman Mark Stanton attended the Planning Commission’s evening meeting at Town Hall, 6401 E. Lincoln Drive, to voice their support.
