It has been identified as a need in the region and Heart River Housing is doing something about it.

As a result, the organization is holding discussions on a long-term housing strategy for the region and they want your input.

A town hall meeting is being held Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Elks Hall downtown to receive that input.

“Heart River Housing is developing a long-term non-market and seniors housing strategy to guide future housing decisions,” says Lindsay Pratt, HRH CAO.

“To do this we want to hear from High Prairie region residents about their housing needs now and in the future.”

To do the best job possible, input is needed from as wide a range of people and organizations possible. It includes the public, external agencies, community groups and all local governments.

Items to be assessed include regional population change, analyzing existing housing available, and working to understand the housing needed and long-term plans for other communities in the region.

Once the information is gathered, HRH will develop a regional long-term housing strategy to build a better future for everyone.

HRH represents 11 municipalities in the region and was established as the management body under the Alberta Housing Act in 1995.

HRH provides housing supports to more than 1,000 people in 633 housing units in 12 communities.

If you have any questions on the town hall meeting, call Pratt at [780] 523-5282.
