Housing Production Plan Survey

Stoughton is updating our Housing Production Plan (HPP) with assistance from Old Colony Planning Council, our Regional Planning Agency.  A HPP is a proactive strategy for planning and developing affordable housing to meet the Commonwealth’s housing needs.  It is necessary to update the HPP every five years to show that the town is meeting its social and public policy responsibilities with respect to affordable housing.  Towns who show incremental progress, can request certification in order to maintain local control of future affordable housing projects.  By engaging the community in discussions about the need for affordable housing and taking a proactive approach in updating our HPP, Stoughton is more likely to achieve our long range housing and community planning goals, allowing for more diverse housing opportunities for residents of all income levels. In addition, communities that demonstrate planning and production for affordable housing may be eligible to receive priority scoring for Grant Programs as well as technical assistance.  Thank you for your participation. http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LZJRV8P
