As the Town moves forward to completing the Housing Element Update, your input continues to be an essential part of this process. Now that the Housing Opportunity Sites have been selected, the next major milestone is to develop and consider goals, policies, and programs to help facilitate the development of housing Town wide. A current example of a Housing Element goal, policy, and program that has successfully been implemented is as follows:
Goal 3: Use our land efficiently to meet housing needs, and to implement “smart” and sustainable development principals.
Policy H3.10: Second Dwelling Units. The Town will encourage the construction of well-designed new second units and the legalization of existing second units as an important way to provide affordable housing.
Implementing Program: H3.D: Junior Second Units. Review and adopt as appropriate standards to allow the creation of junior second units.
Progress: During the current Housing Element cycle (2015-2023), the Town continues to update its junior accessory dwelling units regulations to allow for the streamlined construction of these units by allowing a by-right approval process.
For more information on the Town’s current Housing Element’s Goals, Policies, and Program, read Section VI (starting on page 100) of the 2015-2023 Housing Element.
Please join us at the the Housing Element Advisory Committee (HEAC) meeting #5 on November 3, 2022, in discussing and developing goals, policies, and programs to help ensure the Town’s housing goals are achieved and/or provide guidance to decision makers. You are encouraged to attend and to be an active participant in the process.
