The Housing Authority succeeded in securing CPA funds in June 2022 to purchase an undeveloped property at 354 College Highway for the purposes of developing affordable housing. The lot is 1.34 acres, partially wooded, abuts the Lyman Conservation Area, and is located close to amenities. The property has been purchased and the Housing Authority is now creating an RFP for the development of 1-2 affordable housing units on this lot for homeownership. 

Affordable Housing Trust

In 2022, the Housing Authority worked with the Select Board to write a bylaw to create a Municipal Affordable Housing Trust. This bylaw passed at the December 13, 2022 Special Town Meeting and the Select Board is in the process of appointing Trustees. The Affordable Housing Trust will enhance the town's ability to purchase, develop, and renovate property for affordable housing.
