As part of the Affordable Housing Strategy, City Council approved a parcel of land at 28 Eric Street for potential redevelopment as affordable home ownership which includes the Eric Street Community Garden. City staff met with Habitat for Humanity NL and Eric Street Community Garden members to discuss the project on the property, including redevelopment of a portion of the land for affordable home ownership, and revitalization of the community garden. A meeting to discus the potential project was held on October 16, 2019 with the neighbourhood. An outline of the entire process is in the Lifecycle.

The City’s Affordable Housing Strategy outlines a commitment to identify land for affordable housing opportunities and to support partners as they work towards affordable home ownership opportunities. A Letter of Intent with Habitat for Humanity was formalized on Sept. 23, 2019 outlining the intended gifting of the property subject to successful rezoning, development approval, and collaboration with the Eric Street Community Garden.
