City of Moscow Board of Adjustment to consider permit for proposed new charter school building Tuesday night


More local parents are opting out of the standard government school options. 

The City of Moscow’s Board of Adjustment will consider a required conditional use permit for a new school building Tuesday night.  The Palouse Prairie Charter School wants to build a new 13,000 square foot facility on just over 2 acres off Sunnyside Avenue in Southeast Moscow.  The new one story school would house up to 220 students, 15 teachers and include a separate 4,000 square foot multi-purpose room along with a 24 space parking lot.  The Palouse Prairie Charter School is a public school funded by Idaho state dollars.  It opened in 2009 at its current location on South Main Street across from the A&W.  The project would be funded through state dollars and private donations.  Tuesday night’s City of Moscow Board of Adjustment public hearing on the permit required for the school starts at 7:00 in city hall.
