The Select Board would like to hear from Weston residents wishing to serve on the Town’s Housing Production Plan Steering Committee to assist the Town in updating its Housing Production Plan for affordable housing.
This ad hoc committee will work with a housing consultant and various town boards and committees in drafting and reviewing an updated housing production plan for submission to the Department of Housing and Community Development for approval and certification. This plan will identify strategies and sites for new affordable housing, as well as creating Affordable Housing Goals and Strategies for the town. The Plan will include a revised five-year housing production goal and establish a priority of needs. The current plan is set to expire on June 26, 2021.
The Select Board will appoint two at-large members from the community and is seeking residents who have relevant interest or background in housing development/real estate and affordable housing. Remaining membership will consist of representatives from the Planning Board, Affordable Housing Trust, and the Housing Committee of the Council on Aging. Interested parties should anticipate work starting quickly upon appointment and meetings occurring frequently during the public input process.
Interested residents, please submit a volunteer application through Weston.org/VolunteerApp or a letter of interest with background information to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the Town of Weston, Select Board, P.O. Box 378, Weston, MA 02483 by August 28, 2020.
