You’re invited to review and comment on updated plans for the seniors’ housing project in Slocan on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the W.E. Graham school library.

The public looked at and commented on the designs early this year during five public meetings. Using those suggestions along with results from a widely distributed survey and a need and demand study, design planner Eric Clough has updated drawings to present.

The current designs include a mix of studios with lofts, one-bedroom units with lofts, and two-bedroom suites.

“We have a long way to go,” says society treasurer Sally Mackenzie, “both in fundraising and many other aspects, but we’re pleased with the planning and the public involvement. This is a good chance to pause for a moment and look at the designs,and to add your comments.”
