Saskatoon Neighbourhood Pleasant Hill Receives Funding For New School

For those of you who currently live in the Pleasant Hill neighbourhood in Saskatoon or are possibly looking to buy real estate in this area, you will be happy to learn that funding for a new school has been provided.  The Saskatchewan provincial government has committed to provide $8.3 million to be used for the construction of a new St. Mary Community School.  This new school will also include a day care and a wellness centre.  The city of Saskatoon has also committed to providing $500,000 in addition to the Saskatchewan government contribution.

The existing St. Mary school in Pleasant Hill is part of the Saskatoon Catholic School board and for years has been over crowded and not adequate for the students needs.  On several occasions the Catholic school board in Saskatoon have attempted to get work done on the school without success.  This announcement of new funding will provide for a new school to be built and better serve the students and residents of Pleasant Hill.

With the addition of this new school, real estate prices in Pleasant Hill will probably increase as well.  Pleasant Hill has traditionally been known as a rougher area of the city but with changes like this on the horizon, things will change in a hurry.  If you are interested in either buying or sell real estate in the Pleasant Hill area or anywhere in Saskatoon be sure to contact me and I’ll be happy to work with you!
