The City of Owen Sound held a public meeting and received a technical report  this evening about a  6 storey apartment building with 40 affordable residential units opposite the City bus terminal.

stclareaerialThe proect is being undertaken by Lutheran Social Services, who currently own and operate St. Francis Place, a 78 unit building right around the corner on 10th Street, Corbet Place,  a 24 unit Life Lease condo building, and a four unit transitional housing building.

This new housing - replacing two small older buildings - will be for people 65 and older, in severe core housing need (that is, currently spending more than 50% of their income on shelter), selected from Grey County’s waiting list for subsidized housing.

A grant from CMHC (Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation) and $3 million from Grey County will be the foundation of the project's funding.


For your interest: St. Clare was an early follower of St. Francis of Assisi, and is the patron saint of television sets and computer screens.  We know you want to know why.
