Improving the supply of affordable housing in Cochrane requires the collaborative efforts of multiple stakeholders. It cannot be the sole responsibility of one organization, government, business, or individual, but rather an issue that should be shared among the community as a whole.
All three levels of government are responsible for providing leadership, taxation, regulatory, and policy support appropriate to their jurisdictions and mandates. These responsibilities help to provide policy incentives and encourage donation of capital funding from various funding agencies. It is anticipated that all levels of government will provide financial support including gift-in-kind support and/or financial contributions.
Public-private partnerships among local businesses, builders, developers, the Municipal, Provincial and Federal Governments, and non-profit organizations are important for developing options to fill the gaps identified in the housing continuum. The Cochrane Society for Housing Options (CSHO) works closely with the Municipal Government to establishing working relationships with partners.
The public also plays an important role in helping to identify key concerns. It is of fundamental importance to address all concerns regarding the impact of more diverse housing on the community. Some concerns may be alleviated as community members become more aware of the innovative approaches to integrating more affordable housing into the community. Remaining concerns will be treated with the respect they deserve which is key to this community-building process. Public support is understood to be essential to the success of initiatives aimed at creating an uninterrupted continuum of housing to meet the affordability requirements of community members.
