The County of Renfrew is preparing a 10 Year Housing and Homelessness Plan. It is a plan that will address the diverse range of housing and support needs of residents throughout the County. County Council recently approved retaining the services of SHS Consulting to assist with the development of the Plan.
The 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Plan (the Plan) will identify the range of housing challenges facing the County, analyze the delivery of current housing and homelessness programs, examine best practices, and identify partners within the housing and homelessness system. The Plan will put forward a full range of objectives and actions aimed at fully meeting the housing and support needs of residents within the County of Renfrew.
The Plan will be developed over the next six months and will seek Council’s approval in the fall. The Plan must be implemented by January 2014 as per Provincial legislation.
Input from support service agencies and organizations, housing providers, landlords, developers, elected representatives, and the public (including persons who may have experienced homelessness or have been at-risk of homelessness, or are living in inappropriate or inadequate housing) is critical in developing the Plan.
