Recognizing that securing appropriate, accessible and affordable housing is becoming more difficult for households across Ontario, the Town continues to work to advance attainable housing solutions for residents of all ages and stages of life.

One potential housing solution for Halton Hills is to facilitate the creation of mixed-income communities on Town-owned lands. 17 Guelph Street, the former ambulance site, and a Town-owned surplus property, has been identified as a potential location for developing a range of housing options, including market affordable and assisted rental units.

In July 2021, the Economic Development Division submitted an Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendment application to the Planning Department to permit a 4-storey, 14-unit apartment building on the 17 Guelph Street property.

This is a Town-initiated project led by the Economic Development, Innovation and Culture Division. Staff has initiated predevelopment work including preliminary engineering, architectural, environmental, and planning activities to determine a feasible site concept.

In tandem with the planning review process, Town and Halton Region staff are collaborating on a public call to solicit interested applicants in the opportunity to develop and operate the 17 Guelph Street property as affordable housing in perpetuity. The public call will be issued as a Request for Expression of Interest (REOI) in the fourth quarter of this year.

    how do you apply for an apartment? They will be filled before they are available. Very much needed in this town.

    Norma asked about 2 months ago

    Thank you for the question. 

    One of the next steps for this project is to issue a public call (i.e., Request for Expression of Interest or REOI) in order to find a suitable partner(s) who will take on this project. This means that they will develop, operate and maintain the apartment, and includes responsibilities such as managing tenant intake. This page as well as the Town's Affordable Housing webpage will be updated as information regarding the future partner and their tenant intake process becomes available.

    In addition, it is anticipated that some of the units will be occupied through Halton Region's assisted housing waitlist (HATCH). If you have challenges with finding or maintaining your rental home, please visit Halton Region's Assisted Housing webpage or call 311 to learn more about how Halton Region may be able to help.

    This is a wonderful project. Roughly what time might this topic come up at the October 4 Council meeting? Do I have to hang around by my iPad to wait for admission (as per the website info), instead of checking out the cottage sunset in my canoe?

    Thank you for the question. The public meeting for the 17 Guelph Street project will commence at 6:00pm on October 4th. This is the only public meeting scheduled for the October 4th Council meeting so you should be admitted at 6:00pm.
