Our Goals and Plans
From Housing Solutions to Food Rescue and Distribution!!!
Through our advocacy efforts we hope to:
•Increase housing diversity in ways that are compatible with residential and commercial zones
•Encourage and participate in repair and renovation of blighted properties into micro apartments and shared housing opportunities
•Promote housing affordability and sustainability for all income levels by encouraging smaller homes
•Provide an opportunity for the development of small, detached housing clustered around common open Spaces
•Combine Character of single family housing with affordability and density of multi-family units
•Increase affordable housing options for one and two person households.
•Reduce per unit development costs of conventional low-income housing developments
•Permit Tiny House Developments in residential and commercial zones
•Provide opportunity for infill development (clusters of tiny houses can fit on standard residential lots)
•Allow for higher density standards in exchange for reducing impact by limiting house size.
Food Rescue and Distribution
Port Hope is expanding it's efforts to assist those most in need in our community with a Food Rescue and Distribution program. More on this program to come. We are in the very early stages of designing this program and are excited for the things ahead.
