New seniors affordable housing complexes coming to south Okanagan

Two south Okanagan communities will each soon have new affordable housing complexes for seniors.

Liberal MLA Linda Larson made the first of two announcements in Okanagan Falls Wednesday morning.

The project in OK Falls will see the construction of 35 affordable housing units for seniors starting in the summer of next year.

The government will be giving $4.7-million to the South Skaha Housing Society for capital funding towards the project.
