The Town is asking you to participate in the Blackfalds 55+ Housing Project Survey

posted on Mar 29 2018

The Town of Blackfalds is teaming up with the Lacombe Foundation and the Bethany Group to pursue a 55+ Housing Project in Blackfalds. To ensure that the end product meets the needs of Blackfalds seniors now and into the future, the Town of Blackfalds is looking for public input through a 55+ Housing Project Survey.

Community consultation will help us identify the types of projects most appropriate for seniors in the area and accurately get a sense of the community’s needs, preferences, and learn what is most important to our residents.

To complete the survey please go to bit.ly/srhousingsurvey. This survey is also available in paper format and can be picked up at the Blackfalds FCSS Office.

If you choose to fill out a paper copy you can drop it off at:

  • Blackfalds FCSS, 5016 Waghorn St.
  • Blackfalds Civic Centre (Town Office), 5018 Waghorn St.
  • The Abbey Centre, 4500 Womacks Rd.(can be deposited in the drop box outside after hours)

Deadline to complete the survey is end of day, Friday April 27th.

Plans for the 55+ Housing Project are as follows:

Community Consultation   March 2018 - June 2018
Preliminary Design   April 2018 - August 2018
Design Completion   August 2018 - January 2019

The timeline for construction will be determined based on building type and financing model selected.

Please know that all information included in the survey will be maintained to the Town of Blackfalds’ strict confidential standards. The information you provide in the survey, including that of financial information, is very important so the project partners can determine the economy of the scale and what is affordable for our residents, so that we can move forward with informed decisions. Options for seniors housing includes provincially subsidized models and collecting accurate financial data will assist us when looking at this specific need as well as the viability.

Thank you for participating!
