Hemlock Place is a proposal to build 10 affordable townhouse units at 609 Second Avenue in Queen Charlotte. This property has been generously donated to the Society by Makola Housing Development Society. It is currently occupied by a derelict duplex, an older mobile home and an abandoned vehicle. This project is a partnership between the M'akola Societies and the Queen Charlotte Heritage Housing Society (QCHHS), who have been developing the proposal since January, 2020.
The legal and topographical surveys were completed in August 2020, the lot consolidation and rezoning plans, and the public hearings for the 4 lots were completed in November 2020.
The final funding proposals to CHMC were submitted December 31st and to BC Housing’s “Community Housing Fund” on January 15th, 2021. We are grateful for the support that we have received from Jennifer Rice, North Coast MLA, and from the Village of Queen Charlotte. If this project is approved for funding, we hope to be able to offer more affordable housing units to Islanders here in early 2022!
