The school district is seeking input for the $ 24 million sale of the old Burnaby Elementary School

Virtual public meeting scheduled for November 9 to discuss the Duthie-Union agreement

Burnaby school district is in the process of selling an old school site to support other capital projects – and it is looking for feedback from local residents.

Duthie-Union Elementary School at 7231 Frances St. has not been used as a school since 1980, and the district has determined that it is “surplus to the district’s current and future educational needs.”

The district has been in negotiations with the Conseil Scolaire Francophone de la Colombie-Britannique, BC’s French language school board, and plans to sell the North Burnaby school for $ 24 million.

“The plan proposes to sell the site and use the proceeds to support other capital needs,” a district news release said.

To provide details about the sale to the public and gather input, the district will host a virtual public meeting next Tuesday (November 9) at 7 p.m. 18.30

Participants are asked to email questions in advance to [email protected] no later than 8 Monday (Nov. 8).

Email this address for an autoresponder that will include a link to sign up for the virtual meeting.

The same email can also be used to submit input and questions even if you do not plan to attend the meeting.
