Post Secondary In Leduc?

    Along with the many new amenities proposed in the western expansion of Leduc is the possibility of having Leduc's first post secondary institution in the city. Norquest College is in discussions with St. Thomas Aquinas Regional (STAR) Catholic Schools to potentially share space in their new west end school pending approval of that project.

    Originally, a new Catholic High School was slated to be built on the east side of Leduc beside the LRC. This site had already gained approval from City Council but Alberta Municipal Affairs disallowed this location for a school as they would not amend the Airport Vicinity Protection Area regulation. This meant the proposed new school would have to relocate and STAR is now applying for a spot in the new western expansion lands.

    Consideration of land use for a post secondary institution was already in the West area structure plan when the City of Leduc received a letter from Norquest College informing them about a potential partnership with STAR Catholic Schools and the possibility of sharing space once the approval of a site is finalized.

    In a statement released by the City, Mayor Krischke expressed his approval of this idea. "We are entering a very exciting time for our city by providing the necessary infrastructure to meet the growing needs of our residents,” says Leduc Mayor Greg Krischke. “This takes us to the next level in Leduc’s evolution as a major urban centre by providing more post-secondary options for students once they graduate Grade 12.”

    Developers and The City of Leduc are currently working together on the final draft of the West ASP and expect to present it for approval shortly after the finalization of the land annexation on January 1, 2014
