Attainable Housing Task Force looking for feedback

The Town of Saugeen Shores Attainable Housing Task Force is drawing close to making key recommendations to Council. The task force is hosting two virtual roundtables on Wednesday, December 9.

These roundtables are an opportunity for residents of Saugeen Shores to share their experiences with housing in the area. The task force is looking to hear more information on the following:

·         Your current living situation
·         The type of housing you are looking for
·         How would change in housing change your life?
·         Have you struggled to find affordable rentals in Saugeen Shores?
·         What obstacles have you faced in the process of purchasing your first home?
·         Were you forced to move out of Saugeen Shores as a result of the rise in rental and            home prices?

“It is important that we fully understand the needs of residents in the community,” said Mike Myatt, Chair of the Attainable Housing Task Force, “Feedback from residents is the final step in our process and it is critical for decision making.”

The two round tables will be held on December 9th. The first will be held from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm and the second will be in the evening from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
