REVELSTOKE COMMUNITY HOUSING SOCIETY
The Revelstoke Community Housing Society is a non-profit corporation formed in December 2007 by the citizens of Revelstoke in collaboration with the municipality. The primary objective of RCHS is to provide, manage and promote a range of below market housing options within the city of Revelstoke that are accessible to local residents. RCHS will strive to become a self-sustaining entity.
Affordable housing, both rental and ownership, has been an issue in Revelstoke for many years. In 2009, the City of Revelstoke concluded it would be necessary to intervene in the local real estate marketplace to assist in providing affordable housing, as normal private market development was not meeting the need. The city set aside its former Co-op property, now called Bridge Creek Properties, for this purpose. The Society was established to undertake the development of affordable housing as well as thee management of the sale and rentals of the units produced.
Bridge Creek Properties is a 14 acre site situated in the Southside area of Revelstoke bordering Oscar Street and Powerhouse Road. It is named for its proximity to Bridge Creek, a small stream flowing through the Industrial Park into the Illecillewaet River and well known as a Kokanee fish spawning channel.
The first developments were undertaken in 2010 with the sale of a lot to the Province to build an ambulance station and another lot dedicated for construction of a duplex unit at 1016 Oscar Street by the housing society. In 2016, the Society completed its second project, a 12 unit townhouse complex at 1014 Oscar Street.
