Big Eddy School lots sale delayed

The School Board had hoped to start sales in February

Though the Big Eddy Elementary School property has been rezoned, the sale of the lots continues to be delayed.

All requirements to complete the subdivision file have been submitted to the city, according to a news release on May 6.

“As soon as that approval is issued, we will communicate information regarding the [school board’s] realtor and we will begin the sale of the lots,” the release said.

The property has been rezoned to R2A Special Low Density Residential which requires a minimum lot area of 1,700 metres and a lot width of 25 metres.

This zoning facilitates single family or two-family dwellings as well as home occupations, accessory buildings and bed and breakfast businesses.

It is proposed that the property be divided into seven lots which will each have an area of 1,940 sq. metres with 28 metres along Begbie Rd.

The timeline has changed significantly since the project was first approved by the Ministry of Education in 2012. Last summer the school board was expecting to have the lots for sale late in September. According to this latest release they hope to have the lots for sale later this month.
