Reviewing Housing Needs in our Region - Planning for the Future
“Town Hall Meeting” - October 25th, 2018 7:00 PM at the Elks Hall downtown
Heart River Housing seeks your participation in discussions on a long term housing strategy for the High Prairie region. Once our organization has completed background discussions we will be developing a regional long-term housing strategy for non-market and seniors housing in the region. By working together, we can build a better future.
Regional Housing Needs Assessment and CoordinationHeart River Housing is developing a long-term non-market and seniors housing strategy. To complete this properly we are requesting input from the entire region; public, external agencies, community groups and local governments. We will be reviewing regional populations, analyzing existing housing available, understand the housing needs and long-term plans of other communities in the region. This will be an opportunity for Heart River to gather views and information from across the High Prairie Region and exploring possible future housing developments.
