Habitat for Humanity Pincher Creek

September 28, 2017


Town proceeds with Habitat for Humanity “Pincher Creek Build”.
 
The Town of Pincher Creek has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement that will see the Habitat for Humanity “Pincher Creek Build” move forward.  The MOU was signed by Habitat Southern Alberta CEO Gerrad Oishi, Pincher Creek Mayor Don Anderberg, and Rick Clark, Chair of The Pincher Creek Elks #474 Society.

This project is proceeding as a result of the Housing Needs Assessment conducted by the Town in 2016. After an initial presentation in November 2016 and subsequent discussions, vacant land owned by the Town at 955 Dupuy Street was identified in the spring of 2017 and dedicated to the Habitat build.

The Town then invited the Elks Lodge to consider leading a group of local service clubs and community groups to raise funds and gifts-in-kind. In a meeting on June 4th at the Elks Club in Pincher Creek, the participating groups agreed and committed to raise funds under the name and lead of The Pincher Creek Elks Community Services.  Groups involved in the discussion included the Pincher Creek Elks, Pincher Creek Lions, Rotary Club of Pincher Creek, Angels Within Us, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 43, and Pincher-Cowley Roaring Lions.

The fundraising goal is $120,000.00 ($80,000.00 in cash and $40,000.00 Gifts-in-Kind).  The community plans to raise funds over two years and be prepared to build in 2019.
Habitat has standard house designs which are utilized across southern Alberta.  Industry standard procedures will be observed in design and construction. All building practices meet or exceed Alberta Building Code and municipal requirements.

An open house was held on September 28, 2017, click below to see the slides from the presentation.  For more information on this project please contact David at 403 627 3156 or email here.
