Seniors' Affordable Living Project In Chapeau Nearing Completion
A long-anticipated affordable housing project for seniors on Allumette Island is almost ready to open its doors.
A non-profit 12-unit apartment complex under construction in Chapeau, called the Residence Meilleur, is set to open May 1st.
Allumette Island Mayor Winston Sunstrum says they’re excited to have somewhere to give independent and semi-independent seniors an option to stay living in this part of the Pontiac.
"It’s starting to get exciting", Sunstrum told Star 96.7.
"It’s been identified as a need for quite a long time. Often times, seniors would have to leave our communities and head further down the 148 or to Ontario. This project will allow seniors to remain in the community”.
“The board of directors has been very strong and steady, working hard on this project over the years. And the community has been very supportive of this project as well", Sunstrum added.
A public meeting about the project will be held tonight (Thursday, Feb. 7) at the Harrington Community Centre in Chapeau.
The building has been built as a partnership of the local, provincial, and federal governments.
