It’s been 2 decades since any affordable housing was built in Nanaimo.
A plan to change that has moved one step closer to reality.
The City has agreed, in principle, to transfer a one acre parcel of land on Bowen Road to the Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre for one dollar.
Chris Beaton is the executive director of the Centre…..
The plan is to construct a 25 unit townhouse development for families, youth transitioning and elders.
