Notice of Complete Application To Purchase City Property

The Kenora District Services Board (KDSB) in partnership with the City of Kenora are excited to be planning a new Mixed Market Supported Senior’s Housing Development in the City of Kenora on lands locally known as the “Howard Property” located at the corner of Seventh Avenue South and Eighth Street South. Please refer to the sketch below for an illustration.

The purpose of this notice is to inform the public of the by-law that will be under consideration to declare the lands available for disposal by the Corporation of the City of Kenora to KDSB at the Committee of the Whole meeting on October 13, 2020 and placed on the Council Agenda for decision on October 20, 2020.

It is anticipated that the project will include 54 units consisting of a mix of both 1 and 2-bedroom configurations with a focus on accessibility and aging-at-home supports. The new building will include dedicated space for health and senior’s service providers to ensure that residents are supported as they age-in-place. The building will be a mixed market model, with units being made available to seniors of all income levels. KDSB has committed to forming a working group of community partners, including Health and Supportive Senior Service Providers, Senior Citizen Interest Groups, and local seniors, to aid in the project’s visioning.
