Project Update: Xwmélch’tstn Subdivision

We’re focused on providing more accessible, stable and diverse housing so one day all Members can live together in their homeland. The Xwmélch’tstn subdivision will propel us on this path as it will provide 30 single-family homes and seven duplexes or triplexes – enough housing for roughly 150 Members. It will be located along an extension of Senakw Road and Rivers Drive. 

Project Benefits

The Xwmélch’tstn subdivision is groundbreaking because it will help us reach the following housing goals:

  • Densify our Housing Stock. There will be more homes than similar subdivisions nearby so more Members on the housing waitlist can secure housing.
  • Diversify our Housing Stock. There will be various kinds of homes  including single-family houses, duplexes, and triplexes  so all household types and sizes can be accommodated. 
  • Provide Housing to All Members. The project will help us reach our goal of providing housing to all Members within a generation.

Construction Moving Along Steadily

Crews have made substantial progress on the project so far. Here’s what has been done and what still must be completed.

Work Completed
Crews have cleared trees of the site, excavated the lots and installed sewer lines, water mains and parts of the hydro infrastructure.
Next Phase of Work
Over the next few months, the rest of the hydro infrastructure will be installed and lots will be allocated to Members on the housing waitlists.
Preparation Work Finishes
Later this year, crew will pave new sections of roads and install streetlights.
Building Homes
Construction on the homes is expected to start in early 2023.
