The Foothills School Division has given some land to the Town of High River for a good cause.

The Town will be building a sidewalk on the south side of 12th Avenue, from the Canadian Tire heading east.

Assistant Superintendent of Corporate Services Drew Chipman says it's a great project.

"We are excited about that," said Chipman. "We are excited about the increased access students will have and safety as well. The Town is looking forward to moving on that quite quickly."

The FSD is giving the Town the land they need at no cost because it benefits both parties.

"They do a great job here in the Town of High River and we are looking forward to working with them."

Chipman says they expect to have the work done this spring and summer.
