NCPS annex goes up for sale on open market
The Nottawasaga and Creemore Public School annex, more commonly referred to as the old school, is on the open real estate market as of June 29.
The school property is listed for $675,000, with Sutton Group Incentive Realty in Barrie.
Locals have been speculating what would be the fate of the former Creemore school since it closed in 2014. For the past few years, the Simcoe County District School Board has moved through the process of declaring the property surplus and putting it up for sale.
The annex is located on 1.8 acres, at the corner of Caroline and Collingwood streets.
According to the listing, the 11,694-square-foot two-storey 1917 building, with an addition in 1995, is being sold in its current capacity. The fully serviced site has parking for 19 vehicles.
Clearview council passed on an advance opportunity to purchase the property last year.
At that time, staff reported, overnight accommodation of persons, be it residential or institutional, would not be permitted due to the lands being located in the floodway, as such, the lands are not suitable for the municipality to acquire for a housing project.
The current Institutional Zoning allows for the following uses: Career counselling centre; place of worship; job training centre; library; museum; art gallery; government office or government works building; health care centre (excluding hospitals); cemetery, including an accessory funeral home or a crematorium; or public works yard and facilities with accessory outdoor storage (excluding hazardous substances and gas storage).
Deadline for offers is July 31. The MLS number is 30665698.
