Pasco Plans Another Wesley Chapel School

A new combined middle/high school could open on Old Pasco Road in Wesley Chapel as early as 2017. The new school will be built on 200 acres of land the district owns on Old Pasco Road (north of Overpass)  across the street from a planned residential development (Grantham Ranch).   Pasco County Schools are meeting with the developer of Grantham Ranch and Pasco County representatives on June 17th to coordinate plans for the two projects.  Laura Kinsler of the Tampa Tribune reports that the two story school will be built for about 1,800 students, but district officials say it may be designed with future expansion in mind that could take it up to 2,400 students.  Initially the school would open to grades 6-12 and construction is to begin next year.

JES Properties, the developer for Grantham Ranch plans 250 units on 105 acre parcel of land located on the east side of Old Pasco Road near the intersection with Gillette Road (approximately 150' north of Overpass Road) and west of I-75:

Epperson Ranch South plans 1523 residential units east of I-75 and west of Curley Road, south of Elam Road on 600 acres, mol.  (Think east of Palm Cove and north of Bridgewater). Creation of a CDD for this new planned community is scheduled for the Pasco BOCC meeting on June 24th:
