Construction of the new 16 million dollar separate school on North Dinosaur Trail hit a roadblock Tuesday, August 5, as the motion to have the property re-zoned, was denied by Town Council on a 3-3 vote.
The St. Anthony's group, led by Christ the Redeemer School Superintendent Michael O'Brien, trustee Paul Andrew and school principal Tim Gregorash, as well as representatives from the architectural firm of Gibbs Gage in Calgary, attended the council meeting in support of their application.
The 12-acre property, situated along the north side of North Dinosaur Trail, west of Quadrock Trucking, has been purchased by the province and schematic drawings for the 5,000 sq. metre school (over 16,500 sq. ft.) have already been approved by the Ministry of Infrastructure.
