Open house on village homes

Developer seeking input for proposed development in Lumby

Lumby residents will have an opportunity to provide input into a proposed new seniors development.

The plan calls for a 40-suite non-profit co-operative.

“We would like hear what your retirement needs require,” said Jake Russell, a realtor involved in the project.

“What amenities would you like included? How will your needs change as the seasons of your life change? How can this community be built to provide you with lots of comfort, style and warmth?”

Russell said the developer needs community support  to create sustainable housing for seniors.

The one-bedroom suites would be 500 to 600-square-feet in size and be priced under $200,000.

“There would be a variety of amenities to suit your needs and lifestyle, including long-term medical care and staffing available if needed,” said Russell.

There will be an open house Nov. 7 from 1 to 6 p.m. at the Old Age Pensioners Hall, 1737 Glencaird St.
