Kenora Mayor Dan Reynard is happy to talk about housing projects on the horizon.
"Coming in, housing was the priority," he said, recalling the fall campaign.
Proposed housing projects on the drawing board include two from the district services board, along with two from private developers.
"There's a lot of positive energy. This week, they brought forward the Grace Anne Cottage Club proposal. It's just exciting," he continued.
During the fall campaign, the mayor noted housing was key. So, he's happy to list projects from the district services board and private developers, which are offering to bring new housing units to the community.
In the last few days, council has talked about:
- two projects with the district services board
- a plan for new apartments in the old Catholic school board office
- development plans for the Anchor Inn
"There's lots of opportunity. It just creates its own energy. So, we're very excited about that," says the mayor.
Council will meet again tomorrow to iron out some of the final details for the 2019 budget, which they hope to pass later this month.
