CONSULTANT NAMED FOR NEW VPE SCHOOL

An update on the long promised replacement school for Virginia Park Elementary.

The news is good. 

A consultant has been put in place to oversee the project.

SheppardCase is the prime consultant which is good news to me because they have done This is best  all the preliminary work and have done past studies on the school. This means less time to catch-up and more time to move forward.

In addition, Budget 2012 committed $4 million for pre-enginering work and planning. 

Fingers crossed that the community will see shovels in the ground this summer on soil remediation.

I'll hold the bubbly until I see work commencing, but it is great to see positive development after years of chasing our tails.

Thanks to the community, the board, our local MHA and the government.
