The Greater Victoria School District is considering the sale of 7.3 acres of land at Lansdowne Middle to the Conseil scolaire francophone de la Colombie-Britannique (CSF) School District for $15 million. The sale involves lands within the Greater Victoria School District and enables the CSF to build a school that will accommodate their growing school community.
The funds from the sale of the land will fund future capital upgrades to existing or new schools and respond to growing student enrolment in the Greater Victoria School District.
Information was shared broadly with the community in April and a public information session was held Wednesday, April 28, 2021. A link to more information and a recording of the meeting is available here: https://www.sd61.bc.ca/news-events/community/proposed-disposal-of-lansdowne-middle-school-lands/
Thank you to those who have already provided feedback! If you haven’t provided it already, your feedback is welcomed via email@example.com until Monday, June 14, 2021. All feedback will be considered by the Board of Education at the Monday, June 21st meeting.
Once public consultation has concluded, the Greater Victoria School District Board will give final consideration to the disposal of the Lansdowne lands to School District 93 by three readings of a disposal bylaw. If approved, the CSF will then commence the municipal land-use process to rezone and subdivide the property.
