As someone who works in the education system, I can guarantee that no new inner city schools are going to be built in the next 25 years. Governments build schools at a glacial pace. Proactively responding to demographic numbers would be shocking. Look at all the suburban schools that are at capacity with a waitlist immediately after opening.
The inner city does have some interesting things going for it school wise. There is a huge rise in alternative programs (french immersion, spanish bilingual, science, arts based, TLC) and these tend to be located in the inner city because of extra space in older schools. The demand for these spaces exceeds capacity. The CBE awards these spaces based students living in the neighborhoods first before opening it up to other neighborhoods. Also, the high school that every student wants to go to is Western (because it is one of the most academic public schools in Alberta). It is extremely difficult to get into Western without an address in its catchment area. Many students I have taught have had parents rent an apartment downtown (they won't move in), just for the address and the ability to get into Western.
This looks to be the new design.Is there a design for the new Jaipur Bridge yet?

Not sure this is the latest design. While some elements seem similar, it doesn't match what is shown on The City's Engage website:Oh wow. Well I don't mean to cause a general freakout, but I found the project page by the same people who designed the underpasses, poppy plaza, and the war memorial.

Agreed. It might look a bit dated but still works. Might as well leave it until there is a good overall plan.That design looks to provide even less uses than the current configuration. Sure the area is looking tired but it’s not worth spending that kind of money to end up with a lawn adjacent to a giant lawn (Prince’s Island) and a large barren plaza with few active adjacent uses.
The playground and the wading pool is actually really well used in the summer and would now be replaced with something less functional but looks more upscale.
