Laurentian interim board chair says concerns over green space are being heard

As Sudbury community groups continue to express concerns about the future of Laurentian University’s green space, Laurentian’s interim board chair Jeff Bangs has made a statement to the community assuring them that their concerns are being heard. Community groups shared that they are worried that the university’s 230 hectares of green space will be sold to cover the institution’s debt. CBC says that Laurentian recently had Cushman & Wakefield complete a comprehensive real estate review. “The detailed information contained in the reports will help to inform key decisions the board will take related to the university’s financial plan and emergence from CCAA as a financially sustainable institution,” explained the institution in a statement. No promises were made regarding the green space’s future. CBC| Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
