Time is running out for Elkford residents to have their say on affordable housing for seniors.
The Elkford Council is conducting the survey as the newly formed Elkford Housing Society investigates affordable housing options for seniors in the community.
Mayor Dean McKerracher said he wanted to hear residents’ views before committing district land to the project and applying for grant funding.
“We want everybody’s opinion on seniors’ housing,” he said.
“Even if you’re not 55, you may have a parent or grandparent that needs affordable housing, so it’s important everyone fills the survey out.’”
The survey is due on March 4 and copies are available at the library, district office and visitor centre.
