The Housing Committee of the 495/MetroWest Partnership will host its first meeting on Thursday, March 25th at 8:30 AM. We are excited to host two presentations, to be followed by Question and Answer periods:
• Amy Dain, Consultant, Dain Research, and author of "The State of Zoning for Multi-Family Housing in Greater Boston," will present on the current state of housing in our region
• Chris Kluchman, Deputy Director of the Community Services Division at the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), will present an overview of the state’s new Housing Choice legislation and its implementation
This event will take place remotely via Zoom; Partnership committee meetings are open to all interested persons, with advance registration.
The 495/MetroWest Partnership’s Housing Committee was established by vote of the Partnership’s Executive Steering Committee in the Fall of 2020, and will focus on the issue of housing in the region, addressing topics including but not limited to affordable housing, workforce housing, senior housing, transit-oriented and mixed-use development, zoning as it pertains to housing, and the impact of housing on the region’s economy and resources.
