Minden Hills is asking residents for their input to bring more affordable housing to the township. The Housing Task Force has been doing studies and has learned that there is a shortage of rental properties as well as homes with two bedrooms or less. According to the task force, 12 per cent of Minden’s residential properties are rentals versus the Ontario average of 30 per cent.
The task force will be presenting its findings in council chambers on Saturday (tomorrow) and Mayor Brent Devolin says there are a few different options to increase Minden’s housing stock.
Devolin adds it’s important for residents to have their input.
The public session will be from 10:00 a.m until 3:00 p.m. You can see the Housing Task Force’s report here.
