NLHC continues renovations in city's west end
Paul Shelley, Minister of Human
Resources, Labour and Employment and minister responsible for
Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation (NLHC), and Sheila
Osborne, MHA for St. John’s West, today announced funding of $319,000
for the continuation of upgrading and renovation work on NLHC-owned
units in St. John’s West.
The funds budgeted for this year are being used to complete exterior
renovations on eight semi-detached buildings and one seven-unit
building for a total of 23 units on Anspatch Street. The work includes
the installation of new windows and doors and siding replacement, as
well as roofing.
“I’m pleased to announce this funding for continued improvements to
properties on Anspatch Street. This is a substantial investment and
demonstrates NLHC’s commitment to preserve existing social housing, and
will help enhance the community overall,” said Minister Shelley.
"As MHA for St. John's West, I am delighted to see this work being
completed,” said Sheila Osborne. "I know the area residents are very
happy with the renovations to their homes."
The installation of doors, windows and siding is in addition to $84,000
in roofing work that was completed on seven of these units earlier this
summer by CMH Construction. Current renovations should be completed by
November 30, 2006.
