Long Range Facilities Plan – Sale of Properties

Image result for sale of land
In its efforts to advance the 2016-2024 Long Range Facilities Plan, the Board will be disposing of the following property, subject to the Minister of Education’s approval, and the Board’s authority:

The Board recognizes the important partnerships and complexities some of the properties above entail. Therefore, the method of disposal for each property may vary as instructed by the Board and have yet to be determined.

“One of the overarching principles of the facilities plan is to decrease the cost of ownership of the Board’s assets”, says Chair Trenaman. “By divesting the Board of properties not housing SD8’s programs and students, the Board can better allocate resources to classrooms and programming, and reduce deferred maintenance costs over the long term.” Once the Board has determined how it will dispose of each property, those methods will be communicated.

In the meantime, all inquiries and tours need to be authorized and arranged through the Secretary-Treasurer.

For further information, please contact Secretary-Treasurer Kim Morris at 250-352-6681 or kmorris@sd8.bc.ca or visit http://www.sd8.bc.ca/Publ/SD8FacilitiesPlan-Draft3-20161003.pdf.

Sincerely,
Lenora Trenaman
