Notice of Land Exchange Bylaws - St. Mary's Site

In June 2009 as part of the New Westminster Schools Project, the School District purchased the site of the former St. Mary's Hospital and several residential lots for a new elementary school to replace the elementary school at the John Robson site.  There were City roadways within the parcels which the City had officially closed which created a single irregular shaped parcel of land.  The Massey Performing Arts Business Terms Agreement dated June 28, 2010, between the Board of Education for School District No. 40 (New Westminster) and the City of New Westminster, included the requirement to address the consolidation of the properties and the former roads rights-of-ways to maximize the area for construction of the new elementary school on the site of the former St. Mary's Hospital.  As required, to facilitate the process of land exchange, at their May 31, 2011 meeting the Board of Education passed 1st and 2nd readings of Bylaw No. 2011-03 "School Site Acquisition of Property" and Bylaw No. 2011-04 "School Site Disposition of Property".  A notice of land exchange will be posted in the newspaper and the Board will accept public comments via mail or email by June 17th or by delegation at the June 21, 2011 Board Meeting.  More information is linked below:
