Seniors Housing Project 2010

Recipient: Nechako View Seniors Housing
Amount: 75000
Date: 2010-07-27
Areas: Vanderhoof
Sectors: Community Infrastructure
Strategy: Community Infrastructure
Description: After successful completion of three prior construction projects and the addition of several senior's housing units to the Vanderhoof community, Nechako View Senior Citizens Housing Society (NVSCHS) is approved to receive funding assistance to construct an additional triplex and a Common Room on the property. This type of housing is not eligible for government funding (such as Independent Living BC) as the units are designed to be self-supporting with no services. The primary beneficiaries of this project will be the growing senior's population of Vanderhoof, and the local businesses and agencies that serve them.

Well, this success story throws back a little bit. We started planning for the expansion at the Burns Lake Public Library in the early 2000's. It was an ambitious project - double the size of the library!! The board...
