LRCA Affordable Housing Project: Under Construction
Frequently Asked Questions
The goal of the LRCA Affordable Housing Project is to build a home for low and moderate income families, seniors and persons with developmental disabilities. Careful consideration was given to the site selection and the building design to support this goal.
The site, which once contained an abandoned church, is well located near existing services and promises to provide residents plenty of sunlight and stunning views of the harbour and mountains that surround Ladysmith. Both the site and the building design -- featuring access to a common kitchen, court yard, hall and mixed unit sizes -- encourage social integration and cohesion.
While the units in the building are not large, they are functional and take into account mobility and other medical challenges of the residents. Once combined with social activities and external social supports, it is expected that the LRCA Affordable Housing Project will provide a needed home to many of Ladysmith’s low and moderate income households.
