The Summerlea school park site consists of 5.18 ha of planned open space and a 1.0 ha vacant school building site. The 1.0 ha vacant school building site at 17503-93 Avenue 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 site will be developed as a mix of market and non-market medium density housing, ranging from townhouses to low-rise apartment buildings. The specific type of housing has not been finalized and will be determined in consultation with the community. At this time, it is not known when the community engagement process will begin. Residents will be informed in advance of all upcoming engagement opportunities.
The 5.18 ha of open space will be retained by the City and will continue to serve sports, recreation and community league uses.
