Braidwood development update

  • Dec. 9, 2015 4:00 p.m.

A development team consisting of representatives from the M’akola Group of Societies, Wachiay Friendship Centre, BC Housing and the City of Courtenay held its first meeting in October to determine the next steps for the proposed Braidwood supportive housing project.

Last summer, Courtenay council had appointed M’akola and Wachiay as joint project sponsors, and directed staff to proceed with due diligence tasks worth $27,500. These include a site assessment, and Hazmat and legal surveys. CAO David Allen expects the work — which is critical to meet BC Housing’s comfort level — to be completed early in the new year.

There is about $183,000 remaining in Braidwood reserves.
