Pleased to share that the new Greensville school and community hub project has received provincial approvals and will proceed to tender in early June 2018. As a result, the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board is expecting to have shovels in the ground later this summer, with the project slated to be completed and open to students in September 2019.
In addition to the 39,000-square foot school and 2,500 square-foot daycare centre, the community hub project will also include a Hamilton Public Library branch and a City of Hamilton community centre. The new building will be built behind the former school site, which will be the 71-space parking lot in the new design. The community centre component is a large space that is divisible, with a kitchen, washroom and multi-purpose rooms. With the increase of popularity of visitors to Websters Falls, there is ongoing discussion on limiting access to the parking lot on weekends and evenings.
