In 2021 we joined forces with Hamilton East Kiwanis Non-Profit Homes and created Caledon Community Collaborative. The focus on the partnership is a unique and innovative approach in developing new affordable housing and community at 60 Caledon Avenue in Hamilton. A formal partnership of this kind between multiple non-profit organizations is a new model in Hamilton.
The plan is to develop an affordable housing community on the former Mountain Secondary School property. Since last year 2021, we hosted five community consultations with the neighbour, the public, and with City officials; we have finalized the development plan and will add 266 much-needed affordable housing units inn Hamilton. This collaboration will support Hamilton is Home’s initiative of developing 3000 affordable units over three years.
The project will include a public park on about a third of the development site, with units being powered on sustainable energy with net-zero carbon emissions. We’re currently in the site planning stage and construction is planned to begin in 2023.
