INFORMATION: The Affordable Housing Task Force began its work in the summer of 2012. After considering existing policies and regulations and collecting input from affordable housing providers the development community, and the whole of the Board of Aldermen, the Task Force determined that the Town's efforts to sustain and expand affordable housing opportunities would be better informed and more strategic if a set of goals and strategies were put in place. The Task Force has prepared such a framework and the goals and strategies have been discussed and refined at Board of Aldermen worksessions on April 8th and May 27th.

The Goals and Strategies have been reformatted slightly from the version provided at worksessions. Per discussion and comments, an overview of the work of the Task Force has been included. A summary of the manner in which the document is expected to guide actions related to affordable housing over the next few years has also been included. See Attachment 2 for the updated document.
