OHSWEKEN — Six Nations Elected Council celebrated the completion of 5 townhouse units in a new residential area just off Fourth Line in Ohsweken.
The site, now named Harold Road, will be home to five families making the three bedroom townhouses their new homes.
SNEC says there are future plans to build an additional 10 single bedroom homes at the Harold Road location as well.
An Open House for the Community of Unit A will be held Friday, March 8 from 9:30 a.m. to noon at 79 Harold Road, off of 1890 Fourth Line.

With these homes taking the place of previous illegal dumping grounds it will be interesting to see how, without having completed an Environmental Impact Assessment on this project, these families contribute to ensuring minimal negativity on the environment, given the waterway located just behind the plot of land.
In the future, it would be great for SNC to complete environmental impact assessments prior to building like this. It would also be good to hold community consultations with people in the area prior to creating such a long-lasting disturbance. For all of the effort, they could have used a better design so that the houses didn’t look like warehouses for people to live.
