Five-Year Review of Hastings County’s Housing and Homelessness Plan
Posted: November 26, 2019
In March of 2019, the City of Belleville with co-chairs Ruth Estwick of Quinte Homebuilders’ Association and Bob Cottrell of All Together Housing, hosted Belleville’s first two-day Housing Summit to begin to address the critical shortage of rental accommodation in Belleville. From this summit a strategic action plan was developed and implemented.
City Council continues to work with community and municipal partners to address this issue through collaborative partnerships. As a member of the Hastings County Community and Human Services Committee, City Councillor Chris Malette encourages residents to read the recently issued five-year review of Hastings County’s Housing and Homelessness Plan. Hasting’s County implemented the 10-year Housing and Homelessness Plan entitled, “Opening the Right Door” in January of 2014. The Province of Ontario requires all Service Managers to review their 10-year plan at the half-way point and this detailed document contains the results of the review.
“This highly detailed, in-depth report contains many important points and includes a great deal from our Housing Summit held earlier this year,” stated City Councillor Chris Malette. “The information in this report is relevant to our region’s current housing issues and I suggest residents take the time to read the review.”
