Class might not be in session, but there’s plenty of activity at one Vernon school.
An $11.48 million expansion has started at BX Elementary on Silver Star Road.
Creating 240 new student spaces, the project is expected to be completed in time for September 2021.
“The new addition onto the school is progressing well,” said BX Principal Tyler Galenzoski. “Our construction team is preparing for the foundation to be poured. They make a lot of noise, so it is helpful that students are currently not in the building.”
Following a public hearing April 27, the City of Vernon council provided support to the official community plan text amendment bylaw, specifically the boundary extension, that will allow for the school to be hooked up to the city’s sewer service.
