Scope and content

"A 50 suite senior citizens apartment building will be built in Bradford early next year. Last week, council and the town planning board met with officials of the Ontario Housing Corporation and the plans were revealed. OHC recently purchased five acres of land from the municipality in the west end of town on Miller Park Avenue. The suites will be available to senior citizens who presently reside in Bradford and West Gwillimbury. The rents will be geared to income. The contract for the building is expected to be let later this year and construction to be started in the spring of 1975. Town council has been working for almost four years to obtain the senior citizens apartment. The long delay was due to difficulty in obtaining a suitable site for the project. Last year, the town purchased almost 13 acres of land from the provincial government following the closing of the old Department of Highways garage. The original proposal was for 15 units but it was increased when West Gwillimbury council expressed an interest."
