The Chandler City Council will consider a land annexation and rezoning request for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to develop the La Paglia High School Seminary and professional office space on 1.7 acres at Gilbert and Ocotillo roads.
The school could house as many as 540 students.
The 1.7 acres is currently unincorporated and is near the site of a new proposed Chandler Unified School District high school.
The Chandler Council will vote at its meeting later today (Thursday, Feb. 25) to annex the land and rezone the property to allow for construction of the church school.
The land is currently vacant and zoned for farming. The council is being asked to change that designation to Planned Area Development (PAD).
The church also wants to develop professional offices adjacent to the new school.
The office space is slated to total 6,336 square feet, according to design plans.
