housing choices they encountered on their recent getaway.  They were absolutely blown away by the housing choices available in retirement areas they visited…(and the affordable prices , hey, maybe choice and affordable together???? maybe!)

The person lives in Summerland and loves Summerland but what an eye opener to see the housing options out there in the real world!

Summerland has spent so long navel gazing and “discussing” and “studying” affordable housing with no results, and, frankly, spent our tax dollars doing so!!

Or, could the term “affordable housing” in Summerland just possibly be about a small town having some CHOICE of housing that provides AFFORDABILITY.   How about a choice of housing that is AFFORDABLE to a retiring couple out of the North who have worked their a@@  off to save and now simply want a piece of what we have here…but CANNOT AFFORD IT!  Just thinkin’…
