Salmon River Elementary School Engagement Update

The former Salmon River Elementary School property was acquired by the County after the school closed in 2008 and a request for proposals was conducted in 2009 with none received. The school was demolished in 2017 and the site has been vacant for several years with some local recreational use. In 2021, the Municipality began to do some light maintenance of the property.
