Brockville – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) Board of Trustees and City of Brockville approved the purchase of 14.3 acres and 9.93 acres of land, respectively, to accommodate the new Brockville Public School as part of the UCDSB’s long-term vision to “build for the future” in conjunction with the City of Brockville’s commitment to build a new twin-pad arena and sports field serving citizens of the City.
The new school will be built upon 14.3 acres of land located at 550 King Street West in Brockville, Ontario and is part of a joint project by the City of Brockville and the Upper Canada District School Board to enhance the community’s educational and recreational infrastructure to accommodate long-term growth and sustainability. This new state-of-the-art school will replace Commonwealth and Toniata Public Schools in the City and is expected to open in September 2022.
The City of Brockville has also entered into an Agreement of Purchase and Sale for 9.93 acres of land to accommodate a new twin pad arena and sports field. This recreational infrastructure will be designed to provide additional amenities including an indoor walking track and artificial field. The timeframe for construction and opening of this new recreational infrastructure is dependent upon the receipt of third-party funding.
This purchase and sale is conditional upon a number of factors, including a customary due diligence period until November 30, 2018.
“It is truly a pleasure to partner with the City of Brockville on this important project that will benefit families in the City for years to come,” said UCDSB Chair Jeff McMillan. “I am confident that our students will benefit from modern buildings that are energy efficient and sustainable in the long-term thanks to this project.”
“This purchase agreement represents the first of many major milestones in the development of what will be Brockville’s largest recreational facility,” concluded Councilor Jason Baker. “While we have a long way to go, we are one step closer to seeing all residents of our region enjoying a new recreational facility worthy of the City of the 1000 Islands.”
