The City of Greater Sudbury purchased the property at 1310 Sparks Street and will build a small community housing building for residents on the Social Housing Waitlist. It will host up to 14 affordable housing units, which will include space community support providers. The building will be energy efficient, requiring little energy for space heating and cooling.

The City will ensure all residents in the catchment area have an opportunity to understand the project, provide feedback and participate in the design aspects. The City will engage in community consultation in the fall and winter of 2020 to gain input into the development of a design for the property. The engagement used will ensure physical distancing directives are maintained. Efforts will be made to notify residents of the consultation efforts so that all residents may participate.

The City of Greater Sudbury’s 2019-2027 Corporate Strategic Plan includes revitalization and improvement of existing housing stock. The housing goal reflects Council’s desire for all citizens, especially vulnerable populations, to have access to safe, affordable, attainable and suitable housing options in the City of Greater Sudbury.

UPDATE: The community is invited to participate in the first of three virtual public consultation sessions, January 21, 2021 - 1 to 3 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. This will be an opportunity to learn more about the project and to ask questions related to the new building.
