More Chestermere Schools Awaiting Next Steps.  

The Chelsea High School lands have been subdivided and transferred to the Rockyview school board!!!!!
The developer has now confirmed the dirt pile will be removed by the end of November!
RVS has been kept up to speed and aware of this and these lands will now be considered for high school funding this year by the province.
We now have a Catholic k-9 and a public k-9 approved for the 1st stage of school design and hopefully very soon a high school.
The City expects to have 6 school sites transferred into the school boards’ names before the end of 2023 and is pushing for another 3 school sites by 1st quarter of 2024. A new record!
That will be 9 school sites, a record. This is the highest number of school sites transferred to school boards during any council term in Chestermere and I’m told in the province.

Now the city and Chestermere residents need to lobby the school boards for funding these schools.

Our New “School Sites First” initiative is taking shape. Our last school site transferred to a school board was before 2016. This Council heard the residents and pushed for getting developers to have these sites transferred to the school boards. We negotiated changes to the developer’s agreements that schools must now be a top priority and for new developments, it is now the standard that school sites are subdivided in the first phases of new developments. This issue will no longer be a reason Chestermere schools are not proceeding.
We have also developed a New “Green Parks Initiative”. On top of this important change of making “School Sites First”, we know the school boards and the provinces will not develop every site immediately. We plan to turn these sites into parks with sports fields on them and to have them all grassed for residents to benefit from until the school proceeds with the building. Which we know can be many years.
The actual school building site is relatively small in comparison to the entire school and field site. When they build the school they will only be scraping roughly enough for the building. Meaning, that the community will benefit substantially from the green space for many years before and after the school is built.
More positive changes for Chestermere.
