Rezoning has been approved for a new school and church next to Spruce View.

Rezoning has been approved for a new school and church next to Spruce View.

Red Deer Valley Mennonite Church is behind the project, which will also include a playground, cemetery and parking lot.

On Tuesday, Red Deer County council agreed to rezone 21 acres of agriculture land for the project to serve the Innisfail-based church’s 20 or so families.

Since the water reservoir in Spruce View is near capacity, onsite wells will be used to supply the development until the hamlet’s system is upgraded.

Council also approved subdivision of the property into two parcels.
