Public Meeting to Discuss Draft Housing Production Plan - October 18

The Affordable Housing Trust is holding a public meeting to discuss Easton’s draft Housing Production Plan on Tuesday October 18th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at Frothingham Hall – 15 Barrows Street in downtown North Easton.  The State requires that towns have a current Housing Production Plan to be certified as being in compliance with Massachusetts’ Comprehensive Permit Law and thus have “safe harbor” from unsolicited Chapter 40B developments.  As long as Easton remains certified as being in compliance with the law, the Town has the perpetual ability to ensure future housing proposals comply with local zoning and can turn away development proposals that do not.  The draft plan is available for review on the Town website.  After feedback from the public meeting, the plan will be presented to the Planning Board in November and the Board of Selectmen in December and then submitted to the State for final approval in January of 2017. A COPY OF THE DRAFT PRODUCTION PLAN IS AVAILABLE HERE.
