Director of apartment complex for disabled clarifies his vision

Guelph Today – Mark Enchin, the director of a proposed sustainable and affordable apartment complex at the site of the Ignatius Jesuit Centre, said Monday there is some misconception about what his plans are. He wants to clarify.

Enchin said the Angel Oaks Communities Inc. proposal is not an institutionalized facility for developmentally disabled adults. Far from it, he said. Instead, it is an affordable place for the disabled and others to live, one that will be energy efficient, sustainable, and long-term.

The idea is to provide apartments for both the disabled and others, and to create a community in which residents support one another. He believes Ignatius Jesuit Centre is the ideal setting for such a community to take root and thrive.
