The Blue Mountains Attainable Housing Corporation’s (BMAHC) mandate is to facilitate the supply of suitable, adequate, attainable, and sustainable ownership and rental units in the Town of The Blue Mountains that are accessible to a larger portion of the population, in a financially prudent manner that supports economic development and workforce development.
BMAHC is getting ready to move forward with its first housing development at 171 King Street East, the site of the old Foodland store. This site was purchased by the Town and will be transferred to BMAHC to create attainable rental housing.
Based on housing affordability in The Blue Mountains, our target is to make housing available to meet the demand of moderate household income in the range of 50 – 130% of median income for TBM (approximately $40,000 to $100,000).
How to Get Involved
A public survey was launched for residents to provide input on the Attainable Housing Project conceptual plans. Consultation and feedback from the business community, prospective tenants, and the residents from our community is important to create attainable housing we can all be proud of. Input received will be presented to the BMAHC Board for consideration in the planning and design of our Gateway Project. The survey is now closed. Thank you for providing your valuable input!
Conceptual Site Plan Options & Renderings
- Concept Plan Community Consultation Survey (Closed): BMAHC is looking for your input on conceptual plans prepared for our first attainable housing development at 171 King St East, which we are referring to as our Gateway site. While we are at the preliminary stage with technical assessments still being conducted to verify some of the site details and design considerations such as traffic, noise and odour, we want to your feedback to assist our Board in determining the criteria for the scale, layout and look of the project. This criteria will be provided to the Builder we hire to design and construct the project. Attainable housing provided by BMAHC must be affordable for moderate income earning working persons and families or recently retired seniors and we recognize there are many other considerations to also take into account. Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your comments.
