October Update

Sherwood Forest School Site

The rezoning of the Sherwood Forest School site passed City Council last night. The next step is for the city to prepare a Request for Proposal for the sale of the 2/3rds of the site that will be developed for housing in accordance with the zoning by law.

Neighbourhood Update and Reminder

Sherwood Forest School Site Update

The city staff recommendation for the rezoning passed unanimously at the City Council’s Planning and Environment Committee last night. I anticipate it will pass next week at City Council. We will keep you up to date as the process moves forward. The next step will be the City declaring the “non-park” portion surplus and preparing a Request for Proposals for the sale and development of the “housing” portion of the site.

The staff report can be found here.

Keep Car and Garage Doors Locked

We continue to have reports of break ins to unlocked cars and even a break in to a garage. Please remember to lock your doors and if you are a victim, please be sure to notify the police.
