As posted earlier, the Greater Victoria School Board is planning to sell a major section of the Lansdowne Middle School grounds. They are hosting an information session for the community to learn more and provide feedback on the sale of 7.3 acres of land at Lansdowne Middle School for $15 million. The land will be sold to the Conseil scolaire francophone de la Colombie-Britannique (CSF) for a future new school.
The information session will include a presentation about the land sale and how the funds from the sale of the land will fund future capital upgrades to existing schools and respond to growing student enrolment in the Greater Victoria School District. The presentation will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.
Once public consultation has concluded, the Greater Victoria School 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.
The Lansdowne property located in the Shelbourne neighbourhood of Saanich, BC is 25 acres in size and 7.3 acres will be sold. A sale of lands between two school districts does not require Ministry of Education approval.SD61 web page
