Col. Nase Suggested For New School Location

Colonel Nase Boulevard being suggested as a possible location if District 8 decides to build a new elementary school in Grand Bay-Westfield.

The District has talked about the possibility of closing 3 schools to build one larger one, and Mayor Grace Losier says the current schools don't have the necessary infrastructure to sustain a larger student body. 

Losier says the District is looking at a 300 person school and the new commercial drive has the services for waste water treatment and enough space for proper bus pull-offs.

She says if the school was built on the new commercial drive it could become the anchor for the community and development could go up around it.
