Seniors Housing Project 2006

Recipient: Nechako View Seniors Housing
Amount: 100000
Date: 2006-03-29
Areas: Vanderhoof
Sectors: Community Infrastructure
Strategy: Community Infrastructure
Description: NKDF Directors were impressed with the track record and community spirit of this group. This type of housing is not eligible for government funding (such as Independent Living BC) as the units are designed to be self-supporting with no services. With assistance from NKDF, Nechako View Senior Citizen's Home Society (NVSCHS) constructed new buildings, a 3-plex, a duplex, and a power building. The primary beneficiaries of this project will be the growing senior's population of Vanderhoof, and the local businesses and agencies that serve them.

Well, this success story throws back a little bit. We started planning for the expansion at the Burns Lake Public Library in the early 2000's. It was an ambitious project - double the size of the library!! The board...
