Not for profit group looking to buy former Central School

The former Central School property in Trail could be seeing some changes.

The Eclipse Foundation for Individualized Support is hoping to buy the building, and develop affordable housing units for individuals with barriers, along with some social enterprise opportunities to support the employment, living and social skills of the clients. 

While there is already commercial zoning, they were looking to amend the permitted uses of the Business enterprise zone, to allow for their plans.

There was a public hearing this week, where council approved a 3rd reading for the zoning changes.

It's now gone to the Ministry of Transportation, who has to see if the proposed re-zoning would have any impact on the nearby Highway.
