From the Office of the Chief –
On behalf of Council, I am here to share that we are the successful applicants of an Affordable Housing project.
We will be building 28 townhomes and an apartment building that will consist of 30-units. The townhouses will be 3- and 4-bedroom units and the apartments are 1&2 bedrooms. They will be serving the needs of our families, elders, and low-income individuals as well as those with disabilities who are members of TteS.
This project will assist us in addressing the housing needs of our members as identified in the TteS Housing Needs and Demand Study (2020).
This project will be funded through BC Housing, and we are appreciative of their support.
Please note this new housing is in addition to the Rapid Housing Elders project at Tyee park.
Kukwstsétsemc to the TteS Housing Manager and her department along with Council for moving forward our housing opportunities for our membership. It has been more than 20 years of no new housing in the community.
We are very excited about these two new housing projects. We will be keeping our members informed and look forward to construction in the late fall of 2021.
