[ARCHIVED] Deadline approaching to submit comments on the Housing Production Plan Update

Public Comment Period Ending

The DRAFT Housing Production Plan (HPP) is now available for a 60-day public comment period. South Hadley is experiencing a shortage of housing stock available and affordable to low- and moderate-income households, impacting individuals, families and the community in a myriad of ways. This housing shortage and affordability gap is being experienced not only throughout Massachusetts but nationwide and has created a housing crisis. The HPP provides analysis and discussion on South Hadley’s population, housing stock and housing affordability using current demographic and market data. These existing conditions as well as public comment during two community forums and a survey have informed the community’s goals for housing and strategies that can be implemented to achieve these goals over time. Towns and cities maintain current HPPs to comply with MGL Chapter 40B, the State’s Comprehensive Permit Law, to address the goal of 10% deed restricted Affordable Housing in every community. The draft Plan is an update to the 2016 HPP.
