  Renovations underway at Chalker Place 

Paul Shelley, Minister of Human Resources, Labour and Employment and minister responsible for Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation (NLHC), and John Ottenheimer, MHA for St. John’s East, today announced $180,000 in upgrading and renovation work that is being completed on NLHC-owned units at Chalker Place.

The funds are being spent to complete exterior renovations on three buildings totaling nine units, and include new roofing, window and door replacement and installation of new siding.

“This expenditure, once again, represents the commitment this government has, through NLHC, to improving our neighbourhoods,” said Minister Shelley. “The corporation continues to work diligently at upgrading and maintaining the 5,700 properties that it owns throughout the province.”

“I’m pleased to see these units being renovated,” said Minister Ottenheimer. “Given the harsh climate we endure in this province, keeping properties in the best possible condition is always a challenge, however, I know NLHC is committed to providing safe, comfortable and affordable housing to those who need it most.”

Renovation work on these units is being done by NLHC’s own work force. It is anticipated all the work will be completed by September 2006.
