COMMUNITY FEEDBACK

Feedack is solicited from the community.

If approved, an applicant is eligible to purchase – or rent – a Walsh Park owned home on a subsidized basis.

Walsh Park always retains ownership of the land. The house may only be resold at a formula price to others who have been approved as prospective owners by Walsh Park. This mechanism allows a year-round resident to enjoy the benefits of home ownership, but also insures the ongoing presence of reasonably priced housing available exclusively to the year-round population. This approach is successful and has since been copied by other island communities.
