Update on Coronation Drive School Lot 12/12/2008

The school lot is in two pieces, the ‘north’ portion needed its price set and was in arbitration in November 2008. The ‘south’ portion remains with the developer. It has been communicated that HCDSB intends to acquire the entire school lot. However, the acquisition of the ‘south’ portion remains outstanding. We continue to encourage the HCDSB to acquire the entire lot as soon as possible.

The following update was obtained at the end of November: “The HCDSB is finalizing the arbitration agreement on the first parcel of land. Once this is signed, the Board will commence with the process regarding discussions with respect to the acquisition of the Ashley Oaks lands.”

On the other side: “Thank you for your inquiry; I regret to inform you that HCDSB has never made any intent to purchase our property.” … and … “We can not wait forever, and I hope you and our neighbours will understand that we must do something with it.”

Do you think Oakville’s Ward boundaries should change for 2010 elections or after?
