2017 07 niv construction1There has been a spike in multi-family housing development in the Town of Niverville this year.

Over the first nine months of 2018, there have been 24 single-family housing starts in Niverville compared to 33 single-family housing starts over the same period last year.

Niverville Mayor Myron Dyck says despite a slight dip in single-family development, there have been quite a few multi-family housing starts.

"On the multi-family, looks like we have a total of 7 units for a total of 61 doors, which is a significant increase. Whereas last year we had 47 doors, so we have seen a bit of a drop in single-family but made up for it in multi-family."

Dyck says a lot of those multi-family units are on Fourth Avenue South and are what they call infill, re-developed lots in the older part of Niverville. He says the balance of single and multi-family housing is always shifting to meet the demands of the market.

Dyck says residents of Niverville can expect a lot of new residential development to begin on the west side of the train tracks in the near future.

"What we are going to be seeing going forward here with the new high school, I know that developers want to start getting roads and stuff in this fall through the winter and then we could see construction beginning on single-family and multi-family there. A lot of guys right now would be pulling to get foundations prior to freeze up."

Dyck says there is also reason to be optimistic when looking at commercial development with Dairy Queen and the Great Canadian Dollar Store coming to town as well as some new development in the Niverville Business Park and the expansion of Co-op on Main Street.

The total dollar value of permits issued in the first three quarters of 2018 is right around $14 million which is down from $15 million over the same period last year.
