(SUDBURY, March 13, 2019) Today, the Canadian Mental Health Association – Sudbury/Manitoulin (CMHA- S/M) hosted an open house and community consultation to provide information regarding a new proposed affordable housing project.
CMHA-S/M is submitting a planning application to create between 38 and 48 new affordable housing units in Downtown Sudbury. The site for the proposed four or five story apartment complex is a former school and municipal records warehouse at 291 Lourdes St., Sudbury.
The City of Greater Sudbury currently owns the vacant building and will transfer ownership to CMHA- S/M, pending a successful application to the Planning Committee.
Plans call for a total rehabilitation and redesign of the 54 year old structure into warm and inviting permanent apartments for families or individuals.
“CMHA- S/M is excited to have the opportunity to expand housing options for people living in our community. Housing is a basic need and having a healthy community means access to affordable housing. We look forward to planning this project with and for the community.” said Marion Quigley, CEO, CMHA-S/M.
Similar to many other communities, the ability to secure safe and affordable housing is a challenge in the City of Greater Sudbury. The completion of this apartment complex will greatly increase the number of affordable housing units available in our City.
This project is Phase II of the Home For Good funding that was awarded to the City of Greater Sudbury through the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing.
