Come learn about a new local low-income seniors health and housing project proposed for the site of the Carlington Community Health Centre (CCHC) at 900 Merivale Road.
Join us on Monday January 28th as we host Michael Birmingham, Executive Director, CCHC and Joanne Poirier, Executive Director, Ottawa Community Housing to hear the latest about this proposal and what it means for your community.
The seniors health and housing project is a $14.5 million joint proposal between Carlington Community Health Centre (CCHC) and Ottawa Community Housing Corporation (OCHC) to construct up to 70 apartments for low-income seniors above an expanded primary care clinic and social services hub at the existing CCHC site at 900 Merivale Road.
In order to make room for the new facilities, the project will grow the community health centre beyond its existing footprint. This will require displacing a section of CCHC’s community garden space; a valued piece of Carlington’s social fabric.
Michael and Joanne have kindly agreed to explain the proposal, address concerns and take your questions and feedback. Don’t miss this opportunity to help shape the future of your community.
