Plans for a new high school and industrial park in north Oakville are the subject of an upcoming public meeting.

A plan to build a high school from Sixth Oak Inc. on 23 hectares of land at 103 Burnhamthorpe Rd., on the northwest corner of Burnhamthorpe Road and Sixth Line got official plan approvals in September.

But further approvals are needed to rezone the site from Future Development to specific Light Employment, Institutional, Stormwater Management Facility and Natural Heritage System zones, according to a notice from the Town of Oakville.

There is funding for the school from the province and the opening is targeted for 2025.

The proposed secondary school site would be on 6.07 hectares of the property, at the intersection of Burnhamthorpe Road West and Sixth Line, according to the Urban Design Brief report. The main entrance would be on Sixth Line.

In addition to the secondary school building, plans include an artificial turf field, running track, and potential winter sports dome, practice field, basketball court, entry courtyard, student plaza, tech court, cafe courtyard, and a play area for a possible childcare facility.

There will also be a stormwater management pond and areas left in their natural state.

An employment or commercial site is proposed for the north part of the property, along the future William Halton Parkway. The business or industry for the property is not yet known but it would have easy access to Highway 407 and future public transit along Sixth Line.
