Hamilton is trying to deal with an affordable housing wait list that is 61-hundred names long.
One idea being considered is developing city owned land on York Boulevard and Caroline Street into a 20 storey multi-income housing complex.
It’s land that is already leased by Community Living Hamilton.
Ward 2 Councillor Jason Farr says the hope is to keep the agency there.
He and Councillor Chad Collins will be presenting a motion on October 19th asking the city to gauge private sector interest in this and similar developments on other parcels of city owned land. (photo credit: flickr)
