Sale of land could be next Habitat for Humanity project in Picton

Land declared surplus by County council last week is expected to become the next Habitat for Humanity project.

A parcel of land on Bowery Street and part of Delhi Park is to be sold to Prince Edward Hastings Habitat for Humanity.

The $31,362 funds from the sale of the property would cover the cost of the environmental assessment the municipality undertook to confirm the land is suitable for a housing development.

The local Habitat for Humanity is interested in a multi-unit ownership housing.

Development would allow a number of County families to access home ownership who otherwise could not afford to do so given current housing market conditions.

The County and Habitat for Humanity are expected to finalize the sale and a Memorandum of Understanding in the coming weeks, with further details to follow.

Volunteers with the Prince Edward Hastings Habitat for Humanity work with families putting in sweat equity to provide a hand up to construct their own home, then repay a long-term, no interest mortgage.

The application process typically takes several months and waiting for a home to be funded and constructed can take up to two years or more.

The latest builds have been in Belleville, Trenton and Tyendinaga. The last Picton build was in 2014.

Previous Habitat homes in Prince Edward County have all been built in Picton – on West Mary, Barker and York streets.
