The Slocan Valley Housing Society will break ground this fall on a seniors housing project in Slocan City.

But president Rita Moir says it won’t be as large as they originally hoped.

BC housing is providing $831,000 plus a low-interest mortgage, while the Columbia Basin Trust is putting up $269,000.

The community raised more than $45,000 in last year’s Hike and Bike for Housing event and has also provided free materials and pro bono services.
