Trent plans to sell parcels of endowment land

August 3, 2008

As outlined in the third phase of its endowment lands master plan, Trent University plans to either sell or lease 3 parcels of land in Peterborough's north end, which are close to the proposed site of the university's controversial private student residence complex. A Trent official says it's likely the lots will be sold outright, and will feature a mix of retail and residential uses. The university is now taking proposals from interested parties. The plan stipulates development be "sensitive to potential environmental impacts" and encourage locally-based businesses and industries. Peterborough Examiner | Trent Endowment Lands Master Plan
