Give Back to Your Community: Join the Board of The Blue Mountains Attainable Housing Corp.

01/10/17

Would you like to give back to your community?

The Blue Mountains Attainable Housing Corporation is looking for volunteers to join the Board of Directors.

In January 2014 the Town of The Blue Mountains established a not-for- profit Corporation to augment the supply of healthy and sustainable ownership housing units in The Blue Mountains which are affordable to a larger portion of the population that would like to live here, but just can’t afford to do so. This is not a social housing program, which is handled by Grey County, rather is a program to have a school full of children supported by their parents and grandparents or individuals, all living in the vibrant, diverse community of The Blue Mountains.

The Board is comprised of nine Directors, two of whom are sitting members of Council, the balance are residents of the Town of The Blue Mountains.

The Board is a working Board were we all pitch in to gets things accomplished. To date we have been successful in providing grants to a number of The Blue Mountains residents to help defray the costs of constructing secondary suites, and we have also helped qualified first time home purchasers in The Town of The Blue Mountains with assistance in the form of a down payment assistance loan.
Your time commitment will include monthly Board meetings (generally a Thursday from 2- 4pm) and several additional hours monthly.

The term would start fall 2017 for a period of one year.

If you would like to give back to community, and have time to attend monthly meetings, we would like to hear from you.

Please contact Bruce Taylor (brucedtaylor@rogers.com or info@thebluemountains.ca) by October 15th, 2017 for further information.
