Ridgefield Affordable Housing Plan up for a vote tomorrow

The Ridgefield Planning and Zoning Commission will review the draft Affordable Housing Plan for the town at their meeting tonight.  The Board of Selectmen will then vote on the proposal at their meeting tomorrow.  The plan requires a vote of the Board of Selectman only. Revisions have been made to the document since its original draft was released in April.  Some were minor changes-- such as the deletion of specific references to individual properties and disclaimers stating it’s not a binding agreement.  It also noted that the 2020 data sources were constrained due to the pandemic.  All municipalities were required by the state to submit plans by June 1st on how they intend to increase the number of affordable housing developments.  It's a review done every 5 years.  Affordable housing is defined as costing less than 30 percent of household income based on 80 percent or less of the area’s median income.  The Planning and Zoning meeting is at 7 o'clock tonight.
