As a result of the community input session in September 2005 and again in June 2011, many participants were excited by the prospect of an elder village on the Commons that would provide assisted living for seniors. A group of interested people are meeting to work on group process and to conduct research on Island Trust and VIHA requirments, island demographics, sources of funding and ownership options.

This idea is still in the concept stage and requires planning and regulatory approval.
Note: This project is currently on hold and may be revived sometime in the future.
