Happy Creek Estates Additional Building Opening
The Town of Hinton is pleased to announce the unveiling of 9 additional housing units at the Happy Creek Estates additional building.
Just after 1:30pm, as a small crowd of Hintonites and dignitaries observed, three ribbons recognizing the contributions of the Province, Town of Hinton, and private business interests were cut by MLA Martin Long, Mayor Marcel Michaels, and Harry Arnesen respectively.
Mayor Michaels shared a quote regarding the development:
“Affordable housing is more than a place to sleep; it’s access to economic mobility, to healthy childhood development, to nutrition and health. This new affordable housing development means a better life for more Hintonites, at a time when need in our community is great.”
All partners in the development, including the Town of Hinton, Happy Creek Estates ownership, Evergreens Foundation, and Government of Alberta Family Social Supports and Housing Program were thanked for their contributions to the project.
The unveiling ended with a tour of one of the new units. All of the new units are anticipated to be welcoming their new residents soon, following final finishing and inspection.
