A future 60-unit housing development for seniors has the backing of Invereme’s District Council.
“We have taken the decision to commit the District of Invermere in principle to make available several parcels of lands (or an interest therein) to Lake View Manor at no cost to develop a 60-unit seniors housing project along 7th Avenue that integrates mixed-use development at street level,” said Mayor Al Miller.
However, there is still work to be done before the land can be formally transferred, such as legal documents and project agreements.
Miller said this marks a significant step for the new development in downtown Invermere.
“The District of Invermere’s formal support to commit the lands needed for this new seniors’ housing project now enables Lake View Manor and others to pursue raising the funds needed to construct this important development in Invermere,” said Miller.
According to the mayor, residents showed strong support for the development.
“The future development of Lake View Manor’s 60-unit housing project will help provide much-needed residences for seniors close to medical and other services in and near Downtown Invermere. Providing support for Invermere’s seniors and elderly for generations to come will help strengthen our community now and in the future,” said Miller.
