November 30, 2020 — Executive Committee approved City Administration's proposal to relocate the development to the southeast corner of the site (item 6.6).
At the June 21, 2018 Community Conversation at Earl Buxton School, community members expressed a strong preference for the development to be moved to an alternate building location within the surplus school site. The feedback received was compiled into a What We Heard document.
In response, the City explored the technical and economic feasibility of moving the development from the approved north-central portion to an alternate portion on the southeast side. The feasibility study was favourable and the City acted on the community’s request to relocate the development to the southeast corner of the site.
