SAN DIEGO —
The San Diego City Council cleared the way yesterday for an expansion of the Chabad Educational Campus in Scripps Miramar Ranch.
Plans for the campus, at 10785 Pomerado Road, include a high school and college that will require new buildings, sports facilities and 280 housing units for students and faculty.
Chabad's permit allows an enrollment of up to 800 students.
More than 100 people appeared before the council to support the project; no one spoke in opposition. Academy officials worked with the local planning group for five years to come up with a plan that the community could accept.
