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.
