    Group Zelo speaks about the public consultation process that took place in Wakefield and how they went about finding solutions regarding some of concerns that had been raised. Affordability was at the top of the list and because of these concerns, Zelo offered 8 units as affordable housing. Unfortunately, L’Office d'habitation de l'Outaouais felt that the units were overpriced which has resulted in the rescinding of the offer for the 8 units.

    During the opening of sales, Chris was made aware that demands for types of units were different than they anticipated during the first phase. This prompted them to modify their plans to create more for this particular type of demand.

    Jennifer Kun made a post to Wakefield Folks and now the village is coming together in picking up its trash. The village of Wakefield is a great tourist destination with the Gatineau Park, hills, rivers, biking and unique village shops. Each summer the village becomes a busy tourist destination for the gem of a village that it is. Last summer and this past winter the garbage bins were continually overflowing and residents are now needing help in keeping their village free of trash. A suggestion is for the municipality to collect the trash bin garbage with more frequency. The residents are feeling if the town is clean from trash before the tourists come, the tourists may be more likely to be motivated to keep the town free from their trash. It is time for solutions to help maintain a litter free, butt free and overflowing trash can village. Earth day is a great time to remind everyone to maintain a healthy clean environment.

    Local real estate agent, Paul Lemelin tells his perspective the current housing market in La Peche, Quebec.  The housing crisis is wide spread across Canada, and is currently affected many residents of La Peche.  Wakefield is a town of artists, musicians and many other entrepreneurs that have made this a tourist destination. With the Covid boom in real estate some of these residents are struggling to stay here in their community due to the lack of rentals available and now unaffordability. 

    Paul speaks on what the market was like pre-covid and how the market has change since covid.  In the demanding seller’s market, he speaks on how difficult it is to buy a place.  They have a roster of over 120 people looking to find homes here but there are only few places becoming available for sale.  This demand and lack of inventory is driving the prices up rapidly.  Most places are selling in multiple offers and above asking prices.  The same is happening with vacant land.  Vacant land is now selling in multiple offers as well.  With the lack of homes for sale, people are opting for vacant land to build on. 

    Paul also offers some advice to buyers in this aggressive seller’s market.  It is hard to see people struggling to find homes and hearing about people needing to leave the community because of this.  He does believe the market will settle over time. This is a very difficult time to buy.  Have a listen to his perspective on the market here in La Peche, Quebec.
