County plans affordable housing consultations

A series of public consultations will be taking place across Lambton County over the next eight weeks to gather input about affordable housing, special needs alternatives and homelessness.

In a news release from the county of Lambton, Lola Dudley, manager of the county's Housing Services department, said organizers expect to see a good cross section of participants at the open sessions, including community leaders, church members, homeowners, renters, landlords, community groups and caregivers.
"Participants will be guided through a structured, informative and entertaining experience," said Dudley. "Everyone is ensured to have an equal opportunity to participate and contribute to the outcomes."
The public input will be collated and examined by OrgCode Inc., a company contracted by the Housing Services Department to complete an affordable housing strategy for Lambton County. 
"Our goal is to ensure everyone living in Lambton County has access to a safe and affordable place to live," said Dudley. "It's important that we hear from people living and working in the area who can provide us with their perspectives, experiences and concerns at these sessions."
The resulting Housing Analysis Report will provide a framework for programs and housing development designed to meet the needs of each community and create an Affordable Housing Strategy for Lambton County.
