A new elementary school in the neighbourhood?
As part of the new Technopôle Angus green neighbourhood being built across from Jean-Duceppe Park, SDA is calling for a new elementary school. Steps are underway to plan and design a neighbourhood school that will meet the needs of today’s children and the local community.
In July 2017, the City of Montreal’s public consultation office (OCPM) issued a glowing report on the Technopôle Angus green neighbourhood being developed across from Jean-Duceppe Park. The office strongly recommended that a new school be built to meet the needs of families moving into the area, particularly given the well-documented shortage of school spaces in the Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie borough.
This recommendation is in line with the community’s demands, as expressed to the OCPM, as well as those of Société de développement Angus (SDA), which has been calling for an elementary school within the green neighbourhood for over two years. The Commission Scolaire de Montréal (CSDM) has repeatedly drawn attention to the shortage of elementary schools in the area, which stands to grow more acute going forward.
In this context, SDA is working toward building an elementary school in the planned green neighbourhood. Discussions are underway; stay tuned.
