Housing Consultation Planned for June 30th

Do you have ideas about housing in Timmins? Fill us in!

For the past year the City of Timmins has been pursuing the development of a strategic, long term Community Housing Plan to help address local housing needs. The Timmins Community Housing Plan is a key initiative of the Timmins 2020 Strategic Plan and is intended to help enhance community investment and quality of life in the city. More about the project can be found at the following link: Timmins Community Housing Plan.

Thanks in part to the great feedback gathered through community stakeholder consultations last year, Phase I of the Timmins Community Housing Plan was completed earlier this year, and work on Phase II is almost completed. Phase II involves assessing the current housing system, reviewing local housing opportunities and developing potential housing strategies and actions. A consultation session is being held later this month to provide community stakeholders an opportunity to come and hear about findings to date and to discuss suggested options for addressing Timmins’ housing issues.

This interactive session will be held Monday June 30th from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express, 30 Algonquin Blvd. West, Timmins.

The agenda for the session will include:

  • Presentation on phase 2 findings
  • Discussion on options and solutions
  • Next steps in the study process

Please consider attending this important event. Results from this consultation session will be used to help inform the Community Housing Plan. To RSVP or get additional information, please contact Narmadha Rajakumar at: nrajakumar@shs-inc.ca.
