The town is now in Stage 3 of the province’s reopening framework. More town amenities, programs and services are becoming available. Provincial orders remain in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines.
In Spring 2018, Council granted planning approvals for a four-storey seniors-oriented development, which includes a publicly accessible civic square and protection of the former Oakville Trafalgar High School.
The town issued an Expression of Interest (EOI) in July 2018 to better understand the potential for the seniors-oriented housing block. Submitted proposals preferred not to include the high school in the development of the seniors-oriented block. In 2020, the town will go forward with the Request for Proposal (RFP) process and anticipates to issue a RFP for development at a later date.
The former high school is a designated heritage building. In 2020, town staff will continue exploring alternate public uses for the former high school based on the results of the EOI.
