Housing Production Plan
The Town was awarded a $15,000 grant from the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development through their Planning Assistance Towards Housing (PATH) program. The grant funds were used to develop the town's first Housing Production Plan pursuant to Chapter 40B. The town worked with Karen Sunnarborg, an experienced housing consultant, to complete the project. The plan consists of an assessment of the town's affordable housing needs, identification of obstacles and challenges to developing affordable housing, and recommendations for meeting affordability needs. A community forum was held on Tuesday, June 27, and a second forum on May 22, 2018. The final plan was approved in August, 2018.
