 So What is A Housing Co-up?

            A housing Co-op was formed when a group of people legally incorporate under the Co-operative Association Act (NS) to build and then manage their own housing project. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, under the Co-operative Housing Program, guarantee a mortgage which will increase only when the cost of living rises by more than 2% in a year. There are no profits or capital gains in co-op housing either for the incorporated group or the membership.  Members work together to manager their co-op. A board of directors is elected and committees are formed. A membership meeting is generally held once a month. Living in a co-op is more than a roof over your head. Members have to take responsibility for some aspect of the running of the co-op, such as sitting on a committee or helping to arrange a social event. Being in a co-op provides an opportunity in share your skills, and also learns new ones.

            Crossroads Housing Co-op (as it was known as then) is just at the entrance to Millwood Village, the new Nova Scotia Department of Housing subdivision in Sackville. Being a growth area, there is a great variety of family-oriented civic, social, and recreational amenities. Churches, medical facilities and shopping centre are within a short distance. The development consists of 50 attractive townhouses of 1 to 5 bedrooms each. A few units are to accommodate wheelchair users.

 

Area Amenities

Sackville is a developing area. Millwood Village is a planned residential development where special care has been taken to provide ample recreational space for residents. Both Halifax and Dartmouth are about 20 km distance by highway, making commuting to both cities is easy. Schools for all age groups are within walking distance and others are planned.
