Senior Housing Committee Update
Unfortunately, the Lake Ainslie Senior Housing Committee has decided to suspend their work at this time. Despite having some successful movement forward on many aspects of the project, the committee feels the need to take a break. Despite a piece of land available and encouragement from many community members believing it is a worthwhile project, the committee does not feel it has the energy to push through some of the work needed at this moment. Perhaps in the future the idea will be picked up again and the project can move forward. What would be needed in the future to make the project happen? The wish list includes: Local investment or funding partners; volunteers willing to join the committee when members wish to step away; someone with business or project management background to support the work of the committee.
