816 McDougall Rd NE Affordable Housing Development Update

The City’s Office of Land Servicing & Housing (OLSH) is submitting a development permit at the end of February for an affordable housing development at 816 McDougall Rd N.E. OLSH hosted an Open House in early December and an online survey that shared the proposed building concepts with the community and gathered their feedback. The collected input helped OLSH complete the final design that is being submitted for a development permit.
