Schools for Arbor Creek area are officially off the agenda

Saskatoon’s public and Catholic school boards both passed resolutions this week to officially remove the pursuit of elementary schools for the Arbor Creekarea from their agendas. The respective moves practically end all speculation as to whether or not schools in the area would ever be a priority.

The writing has been on the wall since 2007 when both school boards shifted their future focus from Arbor Creek to the quickly developing neighbourhood to the northeast, Willowgrove, which will ultimately be a more densely developed area with a higher population of elementary school aged children.

In October, Dundee Realty Corp., developer of Arbor Creek and owner of the 8-acres of land set aside for schools began the process of rezoning the landfor residential use. According to a story in today’s Star Phoenix, “A letter to the Catholic school board says Dundee's plan is to develop 45 single-family lots. The two sites under redevelopment are separated by Arbor Creek Park off Horlick Crescent and Wright Crescent.”

Most children living in Arbor Creek attend school in nearby Erindale.
