Plans are being made to build nine affordable apartment units at the former Kemptville Town Hall and Courthouse. The plans come after the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville agreed to invest $1.3-million into building affordable housing in North Grenville in November.
Mayor Nancy Peckford says these apartments are one part of a long-term plan to tackle the local housing crisis, “We still have a way to go,” she says, “but these additional units will provide important options in our community.”
The North Grenville Historical Society currently occupies the building where the apartments will be located, but will be relocating to an office on Prescott Street for the next five years, with financial support from the municipality.
“The North Grenville Historical Society is grateful for the ongoing support of the Municipality,” says Ken Mews, the Historical Society’s Chair. “Our new location will enable us to connect with our community with exciting and innovative programming with the creation of new displays, events and activities that will engage families, students and seniors in exploring the rich cultural and natural history of North Grenville.”
