Big Eddy school property lots sale timeline on schedule

Pending final city approval the lots could be for sale later this month

The Revelstoke School District expects to have the Big Eddy Elementary School property lots for sale later this month.

They submitted their PLA response to the city on Aug. 9 and expect final approval of the subdivision is imminent, said a news release from the school board.

The school was demolished in 2013 and the school district decided the best way to reuse the property on Big Eddy Rd. would be to subdivide and sell it.

The property was rezoned as R2A Special Low Density Residential and divided into seven lots.

“This zoning facilitates uses including single or two-family dwellings as well as home occupations, accessory buildings and bed and breakfast businesses,” said a news release from the Revelstoke Board of Education.

Each of the lots is 1,940 square metres with 28.59 metres of frontage along Begbie Rd.

According to the release, the school board is hopeful that the lots will be for sale later this month and at that time they will decide the disposition approach for the lots.

The board expects work to begin on the lots this month with servicing complete by October.
