More Housing In The Works For Seniors In The K-V

Housing for seniors in Quispamsis moving a step closer. 

Approval in principle has been given to construction of two buildings with 34 apartments that will be three stories high at 383 Hampton Road. They'll be a stone's throw from Kennebecasis Valley High. 

Mayor Murray Driscoll tells CHSJ News there's a need for such housing in the town for those 55 and older. Driscoll adds he doesn't want to see them being forced to move out of the town because of a lack of such housing.

The town has been told there should be no blasting, outside lighting will be kept to a minimum and changes can still be made to the proposal before final approval is given.

As for the worry over drainage and water runoff, the town has heard K-V Baptist Seniors Housing would not object to a storm water collection system in the developer's agreement if that's thought necessary.
