Sacred Heart School and Convent update

Following the neighbourhood charrette last fall, the Hamilton Diocese, along with Sacred Heart Parish, has started a task force to look at the possible uses for the School and Convent.

Jim Long, from the Hamilton Diocese indicated that there were a number of ideas proposed but the one which seems to be getting the most traction is a retirement home.

He further indicated that this is a very big project and completely dependent on outside financing. Other options are those presented in the report prepared by MHBC PLANNING URBAN DESIGN & LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE for the Diocese following the charrette.  The Diocese is in the process of hiring an architect to prepare a heritage assessment.
