The CPC has submitted warrant articles for the October 4, 2021 Town Meeting to allow for the conveyance of four properties to be developed for affordable housing: 57 Haverhill Street, 44 & 46 Oakdale Street, and 7 Saint Theresa Street.

These properties are part of the Affordable Housing Overlay District (AHOD), a zoning overlay created in 2008 to allow the development of 23 Town-owned properties to create new affordable housing opportunities. The properties in this zoning district were also identified in the Town's 2018 Housing Production Plan as priority areas for affordable housing development.
