ORCHARD PARK PUBLIC SCHOOL BOUNDARY REVIEW

The school board`s senior administration has recommended to the Board that the school boundaries, effective September 2013, expand to incorporate the current Sherwood Forest P.S. attendance area. No additional new areas were proposed in the staff recommendation. There will be a debate on the question at the Board`s meeting on February 7 starting around 7:15 pm.

SARNIA ROAD WIDENING

This project remains in the city’s long term capital budget. However, land acquisition will not take place before 2019, and construction work is not slated to begin until 2021.
