The Great Plains modular housing project in southeast Calgary, Alberta, Canada, built to house those displaced by the June 2013 floods is set to close in 30-60 days, according to calgaryherald.com. “It’s not a hard and fast date,” said government spokeswoman Trisha Anderson. “We’re not going to throw anyone on the street. Getting people into alternative housing is the priority.” Great Plains was designed to accommodate 700 people, but as Anderson tells MHProNews, the population peaked at 100 people but only 45 remain. Saddlebrook, the other temporary modular development, held 1,100 people but now houses less than half of that number. Those still at Great Plains may be transferred to Saddlebrook, although some may move to affordable housing units operated by the Calgary Housing Company.
