Old school for sale

Ashton Creek elementary is going up for sale 11

Ashton Creek elementary is going up for sale.

It’s anticipated the request for proposal will be issued by the the North Okanagan-Shuswap School District by the end of May.

The closing date will be September 12, which will give about three months to see what interest there is for the property.

Trustee Chris Coers wants assurances community interests are taken into account.

“There had been some concerns in the area that it be made clear to potential buyers that the playground equipment at Ashton Creek school is not included in the sale,” she said.

Olson says it was spelled out in the request for proposal that the playground equipment is not available.
