OHSWEKEN — Six Nations is continuing work on a road that will see 95 three-bedroom townhouses built, creating a new neighbourhood for the village of Ohsweken.
The little village is located across from Village Cafe just east of the traffic lights on Fourth Line.
The townhomes are part of a multimillion-dollar housing project the community has been trying to finalize for years with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.
Six Nations Economic Development Trust invested $1.4 million in the housing project, with CMHC bringing a grant for $800,000.
Construction on the road into the property where the townhomes will be located is underway.
Officials estimate the first five homes will be completed by November. The property will also be home to a new archives for the Six Nations Public Library.
There are over a thousand band members and families currently on the housing wait list for the band.
