The 1.46 ha vacant school site at 2008-105 Street in Keheewin was declared surplus by local school boards in 2009 and approved by City Council in 2015 for housing development under the Building Housing Choices initiative (Policy C583).
The new homes will only be developed on the 1.46 ha portion of the overall site that was previously set aside for a school building. The remaining 10.55 ha of open space surrounding the housing development will be retained by the City and continue to serve sports, recreation and community uses as identified in the original Neighbourhood Structure Plan.
The City has selected Capital Region Housing, an experienced non-profit housing provider, to develop the Keheewin housing project. Capital Region Housing will undertake public engagement with local residents, as well as develop, manage and maintain the new homes proposed for the Keheewin surplus school site.
An upcoming Community Conversation will be hosted by Capital Region Housing to present two design concept options, which are informed by previous community feedback. To meet the project team and learn more about the next steps in the project, please attend the upcoming public engagement session.

Municipal Reserve Removal / Signage
As part of this project, the Municipal Reserve designation for the site will be removed. The Municipal Reserve designation was put in place to allow for a school on the site. Now that the space will be used for housing, residents within 60 m will receive notice in January of the process for the removal of this designation and a sign will also be erected on the project site.
