Baker's Garden opening dailytownsmenDailyTownsmen reports that Baker’s Garden officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 36 unit designed for seniors and the handicapped. Baker’s Garden is touted as the largest modular development to date in the British Columbia (B.C.) Senior Rental Housing Initiative. The project is the result of a partnership between the federal and provincial governments, the Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) and the Canadian Mental Health Association of the Kootenays (CMHA-K). The project was built on land provided by the City of Cranbrook, valued at $647,000 with about $73,000 in waived Development Cost Charges. Janice Ivan served as Master of Ceremonies. “This project will contribute to the economic and social well-being of the entire community,” said David Wilks, Member of Parliament of Kootenay-Columbia. The federal government contributed nearly $2.7 million. “Developments like this offer residents a comfortable home, and they are a vital part of a vibrant and healthy community,” said Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett. The provincial government provided $2.2 million to the Baker’s Garden project. Residents will be moving into the new units in about 30 days.
