The estevanmercury tells MHProNews the city council in Estevan, Saskatchewan, Canada is considering two proposals to help ease the housing shortage in the city. One is a modular subdivision with room for 474 homes proposed by developer Kurtis Dmuchowski of Regina-based West D Construction. He has offered to buy the land from the city, the council will have to rezone the land, and the home sites will need to be built up to remain above the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency’s one in 500 year flood design elevation. The development will be registered at bare land condos, meaning the residents will own the home and the site. Dmuchowski intends to start with 75 homes which he says can be move-in ready by early fall 2013 if all the pieces fall into place soon. “This will be attractive to families looking to live in Estevan in a well maintained, landscaped, affordable setting,” he noted. Now that the Estevan Council has given a first reading to rezone the property, residents have two weeks to voice concerns about the development. Estevan is in the southeast part of the province just above the North Dakota border.
