On November 2, 2020, Council directed The City’s real estate division to prepare and submit a land use application to enable the redevelopment of ±6 acres of land on the north-west portion of the site, identified below, and, if planning approval is obtained, continue to the disposition process for selling municipal land.

At the same time, Council also directed administration to complete a City assessment on the remaining ±46 acres to identify existing uses and amenities and determine future uses for the site. Finally, Council directed Administration to implement disc golf as an interim use in 2021 on the former golf lands.
