New affordable housing development in Woodstock

County Council is being asked to approve a modular, eight-unit affordable housing project using $1.12 million from the Social Service Relief Fund, a provincial funding initiative designed to support those most vulnerable to the social effects of COVID-19. The project will be located on the site of an existing County affordable housing project on Parkinson Road in Woodstock and will focus on bridging the gap between homelessness and permanent housing using community services interventions. The expected occupancy is the end of 2021.

County investment report

The County’s annual investment report shows earnings of $2.85 million in investment income last year, a lower than projected amount due to COVID-19’s strain on global markets. With lower interest rates expected to be part of Bank of Canada’s stimulus measures until into 2023, the County has adjusted its forecasts for investment returns for the coming years but will not adjust its current investment mix, which continues to meet the County’s performance standards.

Joint Service Delivery Review update

Following eight previous workshops with each of Oxford’s area municipalities, StrategyCorp will be in front of County Council to give a high level summary of Joint Service Delivery Review consultation sessions and seek any further input from a County Council perspective. The Joint Service Delivery Review was announced in March 2020 to determine how Oxford’s municipalities can best work together to modernize service delivery and reduce future costs. A final report will be brought forward at a future Council meeting. Download the report
