Spring Into Action!
We are so pleased to share this exiting news with you — now that it is official: the Coastal Community Credit Union has given us a $5,000 grant towards the new well in the Seniors Village.
This housing project is a dream so long in the making, even though we have not yet broken ground, it is in the process of coming true. Phase One, the extension of the present Seniors Village with an additional four cottages is not too far in the future. The new design for Rainbow Ridge continues, as do the funding applications and infrastructure explorations.
Housing issues are becoming epidemic throughout the desirable places around the world. The fact that we, on our tiny island are addressing affordable rental housing is both timely and so inspiring; thus enabling residents of all ages to have the opportunity to live, raise families and be elders on Cortes.
However this can only happen when all of us who care about the health and viability of our island, pitch in our resources, both financial and energetic, because as we know:
It takes a community to raise a village.
