Land Swap for Future Stony Plain Central School
September 14, 2020 - Parkland School Division in partnership with the Town of Stony Plain are pleased to announce details of a Land Swap Agreement that will pave the way for construction to begin on the replacement school for Stony Plain Central School.
At the August 19th Special Board Meeting, Parkland School Division’s Board of Trustees passed the following:
The Board of Trustees accept, subject to the Minister’s approval, the sale of lands located on the current Stony Plain Central and the Old Memorial Composite High School sites in exchange for a new Stony Plain Central School site and elimination of joint use costs for the next 29 years, as defined in the Land Swap Agreement as presented at the Special Board Meeting on August 19, 2020.
“Families at Stony Plain Central have been patiently and excitedly waiting for construction to begin for their replacement school that was announced in March of 2018. This recent transaction is fantastic news and indicates the start of visible and tangible progress to this exciting build that will serve Stony Plain students for years to come. The administrations teams for both the school division and the Town have worked successfully to create this win-win scenario. Having Stony Plain Central School as a hub in this future development is truly exciting for all involved.” - Lorraine Stewart, Parkland School Division Board Chair
"The completion of the property development and land exchange for the new Stony Plain Central School site is an important milestone for our community. Together with the Parkland School Division, the Town has worked to facilitate the land sale and develop a new school for our residents. As Stony Plain continues to grow, the needs of residents grow in tandem. We are committed to providing our community and younger generations with the services they need to thrive." - William Choy, Town of Stony Plain Mayor
Recently, the Town of Stony Plain completed the servicing and paving of the 57th Avenue extension that will serve as one of the main access points to the future site of Stony Plain Central School. The contract for a building contractor is expected to be awarded by the end of this year.
