The region is well-positioned with quality infrastructure and municipal services to support investment. The communities have a diverse housing stock and each have demonstrated a willingness to accommodate a variety of housing forms, including bungalow clusters, townhouses and apartment/condominium style multi-family residences.

 

With a stable population and Baby Boomers as well as early Generation X’ers tipping into retirement, they will be seeking to re-establish their hometown roots, thereby increasing the demand for housing. The following highlights the existing housing and development strengths within the region: 

 

  • Available prime development areas with a full range of municipal services, energy and digital technology

  • Standard potable water and sanitary waste systems and treatment facilities with capacity to support all types of development (available within all three communities)
