Brief: Housing society ponders affordable development

The Revelstoke Community Housing Society is pondering a six-unit housing project for the Bridge Creek Properties

In March, the CBT announced a new affordable rental housing fund. A new combined federal and provincial investment of $5 million would be combined with $5 million from the trust.

Revelstoke Community Housing Society chairperson Mark McKee said the society would be interested in details as they emerge.

Currently, the society is pondering a six-unit housing project for the Bridge Creek Properties. The idea is to build modular homes based on a popular program from easter Canada, then sell them. “Every project that we look at has to be self-sufficient,” McKee said. He noted a softer housing market than in years past, saying the need wasn’t as critical now, but the society wanted to be able to react to changes in the market.

The proposal, when ready, will proceed to city council for consideration.
