    A public hearing will be held later this month to consider a proposal for a new charter school in downtown San Diego’s East Village community.

    The city-owned non-profit, Civic San Diego (CivicSD), announced Tuesday that a public hearing will be held on Apr. 30 at the organization’s board room to take up the matter and discuss the possibility of issuing several permits for the Urban Discovery Academy project.

    The project would consist of a K-8 charter school located on a 30,000-square-foot site at the corner of 14th and G streets in the East Village. The school would be housed within an existing two-story building at that location, plus a new two-story, 16,000-square-foot building directly to the north.

    The proposed project within the plan area would also include a four-story, 47-foot-high building containing six residential units, a small retail ground-floor space along 13th Street, outdoor playgrounds and a small parking lot at the southwest corner of 14th and E streets.

    Urban Core Development, LLC, is the company applying for the permits. The project requires permits for new construction and a Neighborhood Use Permit to re-establish previously conforming educational uses on the site, according to CivicSD.

    The public hearing will be held at 1 p.m. on Apr. 30 at 401 B Street, Suite 100, in downtown San Diego. Attendees can come forward with questions on the project during this hearing and can obtain copies of the development plan.

    The decision of the CivicSD board will be final, unless an appeal is filed within 10 days of the decision.
