Earlier this month, MHA Patty Pottle announced that Newfoundland and Labrador Housing would receive the funds to build new apartments in Nain.
We called NLHC for confirmation and more information.
Glenn Goss is the Executive Director of Engineering and Human Resources for NLHC.
He says 1.2 million dollars was provided to build four new units in Nain.
Right now, NLHC is working with the Community Government to find land to build the units.
After that is done, tenders will go out for contractors.
The plan is to build a quadra-plex, with two bedrooms in each unit.
But, that all depends on the kind of land they are to build on.
He adds that construction probably won’t start until the summer of 2011.
We will continue to track this story, so keep tuning in for further details.
