Former Millet School is seeking new tenants

Open house being hosted to gauge community interest

Calling all community organizations.

Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools (WRPS) and the Town of Millet are hosting an open house to gauge what kinds of forces are present in the community and interested in taking over the former Millet School building.

The open house will take place March 21 at 7 p.m. in the Millet School gymnasium.

“The town was encouraging us to hold a public forum to see if there was any interest in taking over the facility,” said WRPS superintendent of schools Terry Pearson.

The school closed at the end of the 2016/2017 academic school year, as the division reconfigured many of the grades in its schools. This included Griffiths-Scott School in Millet and the Wetaskiwin Composite High School.

With the building no longer in use as a school the division will have to declare it surplus, meaning the space can be offered to other municipalities or community organizations who are willing to take on the facility.

Pearson says this could be an opportunity for organizations to provide enhancement to the community.

During the Town of Millet’s Feb. 28 council meeting mayor Tony Wadsworth mentioned how important it will be for councillors to be in attendance for the open house. “We need to see the level of interest from our organizations.”
