The Vernon and District Community Land Trust is always looking for new opportunities to add affordable housing units to North Okanagan communities. Here are two of our most recent project.

Under One Roof
The Vernon and Community Land Trust partnered with Kindale Developmental Association and Habitat for Humanity to build a six-plex, consisting of 4 family-oriented 3 bedroom townhouses and 2 accessible studio suites. This model project was built with co-operation from the City of Vernon, BC Housing, Okanagan College along with discounted services and in-kind donations from many community professionals & businesses. It includes a children’s playground and community garden.
The Land Trust took over ownership of what was known as The Ukrainian Village in July of 2012 in order that this important 75 unit building would remain safe & healthy low income housing for seniors. A 1.9 million renovation to the building was managed by The Land Trust Board to include; new roof, new windows & doors, heating system, air conditioners, outdoor fencing, landscaping, new carpet, safety & security systems. Complete renovation of all suites is a continuing priority. A Full time property manager & maintenance manager oversee this property. A common room and large garden invites a sense of community for tenants.
A recent event acknowledged the completion of major renovation. See our news page for more information.
