What is this project about?

The City of Grande Prairie prepared an Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) for the area around the Leisure Centre site, Composite and Peace Wapiti Academy High Schools and the associated sports fields.

The Grande Prairie Public School District is in the process of building a new high school in the Avondale neighbourhood. The existing High School will be demolished, making the site available for redevelopment.

It is a goal of the Peace Wapiti Public School District to build a new high school in the County. Once this happens reuse of the Peace Wapiti Academy building and/or site will occur.

In addition, the City has determined that the structure of the swimming pool portion of the Leisure Center is in poor condition and intends to demolish it. The ARP identifies future uses for that land as well.

Where in the process are we?

The Area Redevelopment Plan was adopted by City Council March 22, 2021. We thank everyone in the Avondale neighbourhood who attended the engagement sessions and provided us with information and their opinions on the content of the ARP.
