Former Tecumseth North PS property to go on the market

Posted August 29, 2019

The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) has declared the former Tecumseth North Public School property surplus triggering the process to sell it nine years after it was closed.

Tec-North, which opened in 1960 at the intersection of 10 Sideroad and the 12th Line, was closed at the end of the 2009-10 school year due to declining enrolment coupled with on-site issues including problems with potable water, which had to be trucked in during its final years.

The Board has been using the building site as an area depot for its maintenance crews.

Provincial legislation requires school boards to issue notices on the same day to a lengthy list of public entities (including the municipality it's located in) each provided 90 days to offer an expression of interest to purchase or lease the property. If no offers are received, it can move to the open real estate market. If bids are tendered, a further 90 days is provided to negotiate terms.

Two former school sites have been sold in New Tecumseth. Two, four storey condo buildings stand on the former St. Paul's property on Wellington Street. And New Tecumseth purchased the former Alliston Union Public School site on Albert Street which may or may not be a future home of a new administration centre.
