There will be a public hearing on the Coast Mountain’s School District 82’s Building Plan on Wednesday, January 18th, 7 pm at Mount Elizabeth Secondary School.
“The School District is having a public hearing on facilities plan. The School District is divided into three sections,” said School District Trustee Raymond Raj.
This report divides the region into three zones. Kitimat, Terrace and the North East. The Terrace zone includes Thornhill and the Northeast Zone includes Stewart, Kitwanga and Hazelton.
Raj expressed this public hearing could be the first step in a closure of another School in Kitimat, Kildala or Nechako, within the next few years. This report was put together by someone outside the region.
He encouraged everyone to read the plan and show up and say “NO” to it. The facilities plan is on the School Board Website.
The report recommends disposing of surplus property and closing either Nechako or Kildala Elementary School within a few years time.
Similar meetings will be meeting in Hazelton on Monday, January 16th and in Terrace on Tuesday, January 24th.
