Foundations poured on Plains Road Habitat for Humanity build; new build at 2384 Queensway

From Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga September newsletter:

We’re making some great progress on our Plains Road build site. All the concrete is finally poured and the first floor is nearing completion in all 13 units. The building is really starting to take shape, thanks to lots of help from local volunteers like A & M Masonry. Michael Alves and his team graciously volunteered to help build the 1st floor cinder block wall. The wall is the core of the 2-hour fire separator for the housing structure, a critical component of our build. Their skillsets have played a crucial role in completing the 1st floor of our build, and we’re so very grateful for their help.

 

We’ve still got a long way to go and we’re looking for local companies and businesses to help us out. The pressure is on to get everything closed in for the winter months, so please contact Nneka Onwualu, our Gift-In-Kind Manager, today at nonwualu@habitathalton.ca or call 289-983-0587.

From the Councillor:

Habitat is also proposing a new townhouse development at 2384 Queensway Drive, but are in the process of revising plans based on feedback from staff. Once the plans are finalized I will be calling a public meeting likely before the end of the year. Watch for details here and in my monthly newsletter.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
