In response to Revelstoke’s need for affordable housing, the Province has purchased a 1.21-hectare (three-acre) school property. The Province purchased the Revelstoke Board of Education’s Mount Begbie property at 420 Downie St. for $1.5 million. The property is large enough to accommodate a range of housing projects that could benefit tourism industry employees, low- to moderate-income families and seniors.
Gary Sulz - Mayor, City of Revelstoke
“This project is an opportunity for us to work together to create housing that works for the community, supporting local families, businesses and seniors.”
