Filling the gaps

The City of Prince Albert has officially announced plans to sell 11 vacant residential lots for $1 in a bid to increase economic development.

All 11 lots are located in the West Flat and West View neighbourhoods, and will be available for sale by draw on Thursday, July 27.

Craig Guidinger, the city’s director of planning and development services, said they’ve been focused on trying to create more affordable housing in Prince Albert, and encouraging the use of vacant lots is part of that strategy.

“We’ve got a number of infill lots that are underutilized,” Guidinger explained. “If we can get a house built on them and create an affordable form of housing, that’s our focus.”
